Tesla Model S Shatters All Electric Car Myths
We've driven almost every electric car made, and tested most, but the Tesla Model S comes as a revelation. We've been taking turns driving a Signature Performance version on loan to us from Tesla for about a week now and everyone has come out of it impressed.
This is a large, heavy, luxury car that's wicked quick and agile, stretch-out roomy, and whisper quiet. And besides being a hoot to drive, this is the first electric car we've experienced that has a decent range—a realistic 200 miles per charge in our borrowed high-end version.
