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.
