Tesla Model S Overview

The Tesla Model S is a great four-door luxury sporty car that happens to be electric. A large, low-slung hatchback, it easily seats five, or seven with the optional rear-facing jump seats. With its optional 85 kWh battery, the largest available, it can travel between 180 and 225 miles per charge and can be fully charged in as little as five hours on a dedicated Tesla connector. Performance is exceptional, with thrilling acceleration, pinpoint handling, and a comfortable ride. A huge iPad-like center screen controls many functions. Drawbacks include tight access, restricted visibility, and range limitations in cold weather. Reliability has been average. New for 2015 are autopilot active safety features and all-wheel drive.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
