Tesla Model S tops owner-satisfaction survey at Consumer Reports

Article by Christian A., on December 5, 2014

Drivers of Tesla Model S luxury electric sedan were the most satisfied among auto owners, according to the latest owner-satisfaction survey conducted by Consumer Reports. The Model S scored 98 of 100 to top the survey a second straight year.

Behind the Model S as the satisfying vehicle in the survey are: Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, with a 95 percent satisfaction rating, and the Porsche Cayman and Boxster, both scoring a 91 percent satisfaction rating. With two models scoring high ratings, Porsche managed to cling to the No. 2 spot, getting an average score of 87 out of 100 across its model lines.

Consumers Reports remarked that the Tesla Model is roomy, comfortable, and fun to drive, adding that it has low operating costs. The latest top ranking should further boost Tesla’s image as the leader in the producting high-end electric cars.

It may also completely erase a stigma brought by last year’s probe by US regulators into fires involving Tesla cars. The probe ended without a formal recall, allowing Musk to focus on boosting sales of the Model S and developing the Model X SUV.

Tesla expects to sell 50,000 Model S units in 2015. The satisfaction survey covered 350,000 vehicles aged one-to-three years and took into account attributes like styling, comfort, features, cargo space, fuel economy, maintenance and repair costs, overall value, and driving dynamics. Hybrid, electric and diesel-powered cars manage to outscored gasoline-powered vehicles, according to Consumer Reports.
