Car of the Year: Tesla Model S
The ATG congratulates Tesla’s Automobile Magazine Car of the Year award! The Model S uses aluminum to help counter heavy electric battery weight and travel farther, allowing it to excel its class with a distinctive performance advantage. "It's the performance that won us over," said Automobile Magazine Editor-in Chief, Jean Jennings. "The crazy speed builds silently and then pulls back the edges of your face. It had all of us endangering our licenses." Peek inside Tesla’s factory where aluminum blanks are placed into a press to create panels.
