    The Tesla Model S is the electric car that made electric cars cool. It's the car that got Priuses off the road, and made coast-to-coast electric vehicle travel possible. Before the Model S, electric cars were often viewed as no more than glorified golf carts with limited range. The Tesla Model S, meanwhile, ticks all the boxes. It's got a big battery, up to 265 miles of range, innovative technology, good-looks, and most importantly, it drives fantastically. Combined with Tesla's nationwide "Supercharger" system, and the fact that electric cars are finally a desirable status symbol, the Model S is without a doubt the most important vehicle made within the last 25 years.

    Don't know about the inclusion of the Kia Optima or the Merc CLS but, a good list otherwise. Thanks for posting.

    Interesting article.

    The comments show you just how woefully uninformed people are. Especially love the one that claimed that the only reason the Model S exists is because of "$25K+ car subsidies". :confused:
