In fact, it just released a new round of top vehicle picks and it said the Tesla Model S is is the Best Overall Car you can buy. How far we've come for an outlet that usually names a Toyota or Lexus to choose an electric car that costs nearly $100,000 in most popular configurations from a Silicon Valley upstart. Interestingly, the Toyota Prius was named the Best Green Car. Isn't the Model S green? But I digress, a company that many thought would be bankrupt and closed by now has produced a brand-new electric car from scratch that Consumer Reports feels is the best car its actually tested since 2007! Is anyone else thinking some Tesla haters are eating crow right about now?"
