Tesla Model S named car of the year by Yahoo
Tesla's Model S was named 2013 car of the year by Yahoo.
Yahoo Auto chose Tesla’s Model S as its 2013 model year car of the year, saying the all-electric car produced at Tesla’s Fremont factory is a “futureshock of an electric sedan.”
After test-driving more than 100 cars, the news website praised the Model S’s “instant torque,” its composed turning capabilities and low center of gravity, and ample frunk (that’s a front trunk) and trunk space. Yahoo even went as far as to call the car “practical,” despite its higher than $60,000 price tag (depending on options) and the fact that it’s an all-electric.
Tesla’s battery range leads the market.
Lux research analyst Kevin See said while the few thousand people who have bought Tesla’s cars (and apparently Yahoo's writers) love them, that’s not all that matters.
“The question is whether Tesla can produce cars reliably. They’ve missed one target. Can they keep costs low and keep yields high and deliver the vehicles they promised? That’s the question,” See said.
