A hybrid car rental may be exciting and green enough for many, but the entirely electric 2013 Motor Trend Car of the Year Tesla Model S Performance is something else. Tesla founder Elon Musk has said that the Model S was intended to be not only to be the best all-electric car on the road but best car on the road, period. With all due respect to an impressive Chevy Volt rental, the automotive experts agree that the Model S offers an all-electric experience that surpasses just about every car now on the road – electric, hybrid, or traditional.
Critics have been effusive in their praise of the car’s power – it can reach 60 mph in 4.2 seconds – as well as its handling and safety. From a green perspective, naturally the car is cleaner than any traditional or hybrid vehicle because it does not emit any exhaust, but its efficiency is equally off the charts where the rubber really meets the road when it comes to carbon footprint. The staff of Motor Trend estimates that Model S averaged the electric equivalent of 74.5 miles per gallon during normal city driving and an amazing 118 mpg on a Las Vegas to Los Angeles road trip. Featuring technology first envisioned in the late 19th century by legendary inventor Nikola Tesla, the Tesla Model S can be powered by widely available wall current as well as at a growing number of charging stations nationwide. It’s much discussed range goes as high as 265 miles, as certified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
WORTHY OF THE CAR
As you approach, the Tesla key commands the door handle to unlock, waiting for a simple tap to present itself. With it in your pocket, Model S turns on as you buckle in to the driver’s seat.
OPTIMIZE & DELIGHT
Every millimeter of Model S is designed to reduce drag. The door handles are no exception. When not in use, the handles retract into the body, streamlining airflow. When a driver approaches the vehicle with the key, the handles slide out and unlatch with a simple touch.
PLUG IN ANYWHERE
In the trunk of the car is the charging plug. Charging the Tesla S is alot like charging your phone. You can plug the vehicle in the most common 240-volt outlet,(which is recommended) or the lesser 120-Volt connector. You should expect around 31 miles of range per hour of charge.
HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT
Scan the streamlined body panels and you’ll discover that Model S lacks a fuel door. Approach the driver’s side taillight holding a connector, press the button, and something surprising happens: a triangle opens to reveal a small charge port. The connectors enable, from one Tesla-designed port, rapid charging as well as charging from 240 volt and 110 volt outlets.
