Tesla Model S Aces Consumer Reports Owner Satisfaction Survey, Bests Porsche
Despite certain states trying to block the direct sale of its electric vehicles, Tesla Motors continues to impress the consumers that do manage to get their hands on a Model S. According to a recent Consumer Reports buyer survey, Tesla drivers were more likely to say that they would purchase their cars again than Porsche owners, which came in second, or anyone else for that matter.
For a second year in a row, the Tesla Model S luxury electric sedan was at the top of the U.S. survey. The Model S scored 98 out of 100, down from its score of 99 last year, with Porsche coming in second place with a score of 87. Overall, the average satisfaction score of all 280 vehicles surveyed was 70.
“Not only is the Tesla roomy, comfortable, and a lot of fun to drive, but it also has low operating costs,” said Consumer Reports.
This is good news for Tesla as competition is heating up in the electric vehicle market. Back in October, Daimler sold off its stake in the company and is re-investing the money it receives from the stake sale to strengthen its own business, which involves the largest portfolio when it comes to electric vehicles.
