Tesla Model S Overview

The Tesla Model S is a sporty four-door luxury car that happens to be electric. A large, low-slung hatchback, it 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 5-hours on a dedicated Tesla connector. Performance is exceptional, with thrilling acceleration, pinpoint handling, and a firm yet 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. All-wheel drive and the Autopilot active safety features are new for 2015.

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