In perceived quality, the Tesla Model S is #1.

Strategic Vision has declared the Tesla Model S the highest overall scorer among all vehicles in its latest Total Quality Index.

Christopher Chaney, Strategic Vision senior vice president, stated:

“Tesla built a vehicle that generated love in attributes that were most important to segment buyers. Tesla isn’t an electric vehicle that just has good features, but instead it’s a luxurious sports sedan that has true innovation, rocket-like speed and drive feeling, that happens to be an electric vehicle.”

According to USA Today:

“Strategic Vision says its study involves 38,361 owners who rank what they perceive as the best vehicles in every category.”

Best vehicles in perceived quality, that is.

The highest quality battery fires when sliced in half, when crashed at over 100 mph.

Sorry, too soon? 😉

As crazy s it appears the driver of that stolen Tesla actually survived and is now in the hospital along with about 5 others from the cars he hit. Try to find any other such horrific misuse of a motor vehicle where the driver similarly survived.
