Tesla Model S reviews are so last year.

Tesla Model S is Basically Perfect, so Says This Review

I mean, who hasn’t seen at least a dozen Model S reviews by now?

For some reason though, Model S reviews never seem to get old.  There always seems to be something new in the review or an angle we’d not seen taken.

Here we present AutoGuide’s Tesla Model S review.

AutoGuide opens with this:

“Ask any owner about their Model S and they’ll probably have a hard time coming up with reasons to complain about it. Even people who bought early models known to come with quality defects don’t seem to mind. How is that possible?”

Really?  Is it true that even those who own those slightly defective Model S sedans still can’t find something to complain about?

Perhaps minor issues aren’t worth complaining about when you, the lucky Model S owner, have the daily joy of being behind the wheel of something unusual, entertaining and incredible:

THE VERDICT

“It probably wouldn’t matter if the Model S could drive 500 or even 1,000 miles on a single charge. Some people would still grouse over its limitations as an electric car. Limitations in charging infrastructure restrict what it can do. This is true. It’s also true that you’re unlikely to run into those limitations outside of unusually long drives.”

“Don’t let electric naysayers scare you away from the Model S. If you can afford a six-figure car, Tesla can offer you something unusual, entertaining and incredible.”

    Why does everyone refer to the Model S as a “six-figure car”? Do they not realize the base Model S is just over $60K? Even a base Model S is an entertaining and amazing vehicle.

    1. Dave R says:

      Technically the Model S starts at $70k – you only get to $60k after tax credits and state rebates if applicable.

      Most people are going to order a 85 kWh Model S with the tech package, leather and a few other options, at which point you’re looking at $90k.

      I know that if I optioned one out the way I wanted, it’d be in the mid-$90s (just thousands away from 6 figures) before tax credits (which largely just offset sales tax).

  2. Probably because most people order the 85kW with a few extra
    trim packages (leather, nav, stereo upgrade) which quickly put the car in six figure territory.
