Tesla Model S is Motor Trend Car of the Year!

Post date: Nov 14, 2012 10:56:47 PM

Elon Musk and his Tesla electric cars continue to make big-time news, now winning the coveted Motor Trend car of the year award.

Two things are important here: First, as MT’s subhead on their story said, this is “Proof Positive that America Can Still Make (Great) Things”. Second, the magazine’s reporting underscores that electric vehicles can be powerful, fast, exciting, well-handling, fun-to-drive cars. There is nothing wimpy in this technology.

Now, as I said in my earlier comments on the Tesla, most of us may not be able to afford this gem, but it is heartening that this state-of-the-art, climate-friendly, 21st century technology is being built and delivered right now in this country.
