Editor's Overview

Tesla Motors continues to break the automotive stereotype, producing an expanding line of proven electric vehicles and shunning the traditional dealer network. The star of the Tesla lineup is the 2016 Tesla Model S EV, a handsome luxury sedan that can be ordered in a number of configurations, including rear- or all-wheel drive (RWD, AWD).

It is reliable when driving state to state.

No problems with the tesla model s, would recommend this car to buyers looking to buy, it is comfortable while driving from state to state, only prevalent would be people who do not have home Chargers take up the charging ports.

- Patricia T

Charging stations a readily available and trips can be taken just about anywhere that you can think of.

The car rides well and is fun to drive. It is a very luxurious vehicle and has all the amenities that I would need. The car has been dependable and have used it for several road trips. Most of all, no gas.

- Ezio P

Top safety features. Autopilot features in case your sleepy and cannot focus.

It does not include gas, which saves me from the trouble of thinking about gas prices. Charge the battery and drive for at least 300 miles with the best drive possible!
