As year-end automobile awards arrive, the vehicle that's revving ahead of the pack is a car that can't rev at all. The all-electric Tesla Model S won "car of the year" from Motor Trend magazine, Automobile Magazine, and Yahoo Autos – as well as Popular Mech­anics' award for technical innovation.

"We've driven almost every electric car made, and tested most, but the Tesla Model S comes as a revelation," writes Consumer Reports, which, as of press time, had not named its car of the year. "These guys are serious about demolishing every obstacle that stands in the way of the electric car."
