Consumer Reports notes the car gets the equivalent of 87 miles per gallon. Actually, it did better than that, scoring 103 points in a scoring system that, “by definition,” doesn’t go past 100. Among the many reasons it scored so remarkably high, says the outlet: its “brutally quick” acceleration (the car soars from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds); better braking and handling than the standard Model S (which also receives high marks from Consumer Reports); and its stunning energy efficiency. Tesla’s latest Model S performed so well in the non-profit publication’s testing that its score was literally off the charts.

 

 

  • The Tesla Model S is the best-performing new car in Consumer Reports’ history.
  • Of course, the car isn’t perfect, says the report.
  • Self posts must contribute positively to /r/technology and foster reasonable discussion.
