Tesla Model S is amazing, according to journalists

Article by Christian A., on July 17, 2012

The reviews for Tesla Motors’ have been spectacular. Last year, CEO Elon Musk had announced that it will set a goal for the Model S to be the electric car that can be the best car in the world. Tesla had recently permitted a few auto journalists to drive around in the battery electric sedan. One tester said that its performance is more like that of the Lambo.

The comments made about the Model S include The Wall Street Journal, which said that this vehicle is “hard-core amazing.” Meanwhile, Autoweek's Davey G. Johnson said that Tesla's thin, flat battery pack has to have a center of gravity that’s as low as that of a Ford GT's.

Los Angeles Times: However, Johnson thinks that when the Model S was being designed, it somehow failed to provide map pockets, bottle holders and second-row cupholders.

He added that the first thing that becomes obvious when pressing the throttle on the 85 kWh test is its acceleration, he told Automotive news. Motor Trend said that the Model S goes faster than most Porsches and would be flatter than the roadwill but without the tires getting damaged.
