Expert Review

By Kelley Blue Book Editorial Staff

Editor's Overview

Where Fisker's electric car failed, it appears Tesla has survived the gauntlet of criticism and minor setbacks to become the shining star of the plug-in-car market. Sleek, fast, safe and capable of covering distances previous electric cars could only do on the back of a flatbed, the 2014 Tesla Model S proves the future is now.

Best car on the planet, highly recommended.

The tesla is by way and far the best car I have ever driven. It is super fast and interface is super slick. Driving across the country is free with superChargers. The car updates often making it a new car with each update. I will buy more tesla’s in the future.

- Lynn D

It is electric and has zero emissions. It requires almost no maintenance and is very quiet.

I like the fact that it is electric and does not pollute the atmosphere. It is extremely comfortable and a very smooth ride. The car has a great amount of power in needed situations. it is also very fun to drive.

- roy n

The fact that it is an electric car should definitely be the headline. There really isn't any reason not to want a car that doesn't run on gas.

The vehicle is great! It's an electric car, so I'm saving a lot on gas money. The seats are comfortable, and I really like the way the car looks on the outside.
