Consumer Reports' Tesla Model S P85D
Following the brand-ranking release in which Tesla soundly placed in the number one spot, Consumer Reports has released a model-by-model breakdown of its customer satisfaction survey results.
The results place the Tesla Model S in the #1 spot with a 94% "would buy again" ranking.
Number two goes to the Chevrolet Corvette (not a plug-in, so who cares), but in third place is another Chevy that does indeed sport a plug. It's called the Volt and it managed a 90% "would buy again" ranking.
Consumer Reports had this to say of the Volt's number three ranking on the chart:
"Usually the car owners and our experts agree. But not always. For example, we don’t see eye to eye on the Chevrolet Volt. Our testers panned the car for its mediocre driving experience, but it ranked third overall in our survey, with owners praising its “peppy” around-town power and energy efficiency."
The only other plug-in in the top 10 on the chart is the Tesla Model X at 88% "would buy again."
If you look at the Top 5 below, you'll notice that all of the vehicles (except perhaps the Audi Q7) have that "something special" factor that's hard to put a finger on. It seems the top cars on these lists are often placed there based on a passionate connection between the owner and the vehicle.
