Tesla Model S at TIME: Tesla Model S One Of Best Inventions Of 2012

Another feather in Tesla Model S’ cap, and a rather big one no less. this incredible electric car has been chosen by Time Magazine as one of their Best Inventions Of 2012. The Tesla shares the list with the likes of Curiosity Rover, Google Glass, in-door clouds, Bahar Towers, body armor for women and self-inflating tires.

Model S is the first electric car that is totally usable in the real world, and then some. It looks absolutely gorgeous, its performance will embarrass most petrol-powered super saloons, and yet it can cover 265 miles on one single charge.

Before this Tesla Model S has been awarded as Car of the Year by Automobile Magazine and Yahoo! Autos. The S is at the beginning of its career. The list of its awards and accomplishments will definitely grow much bigger in the future.

“This electric four-door sedan has the lines of a Jaguar, the ability to zip for 265 miles (426 km) on one charge — that’s the equivalent of 89 m.p.g. (2.6 L/100 km) — and touchscreen controls for everything from GPS navigation to adjusting the suspension,” said Time on its Web site. “Tesla is building a network of supercharger stations — six are open so far — so owners aren’t tethered to their home port.”
