Shocker: Tesla S Beats Out Gas Burners for 2013 Motor Trend COTY

Posted by: Kenny Chan onNovember 13th, 2012

Motor Trend has announced that the Telsa Model S has been awarded its 2013 Car of the Year award beating out a wide field of offerings from automakers like Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Porsche. To take the top honours, the Model S garnered a unanimous vote from the panel of Motor Trend judges–a first for the coveted award.

“Our aspiration with the Model S was to show that an electric car truly can be better than any gasoline car, which is a critical step towards the widespread adoption of sustainable transport,” said Elon Musk, Tesla Motors co-founder and CEO. “Nothing illustrates this more clearly than winning Motor Trend’s Car of the Year by unanimous decision against a field of exceptional competitors.”

While electric cars continue to be “image cars” in my opinion, Telsa is at least making cars that are exciting to see and drive. At least we know the future bodes well for Tesla, if not for the electric car.
