By all accounts, the Tesla Model S is a formidable offering in the electric vehicle world, a market that’s still considered to be in its infant stage.

Recently, the American automaker’s newest sedan landed on TIME Magazine‘s Best Invention of the Year 2012 list. The publication went so far as to say that the Tesla “has the lines of a Jaguar” but was mostly impressed by its range of 200-plus miles.

Of course, we loved the fact that the Model S delivers 362 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque and in our review commented that; “This might not just be the future of the electric car. The Tesla Model S could be the future of the American auto industry.”

    As a Volt owner – I have Tesla Model S envy!  Both vehicles are creating a much needed paradigm shift in the transportation industry that will transform how we think about personal transport.  Kudos to Elon Musk and all the Good Work he is doing for the planet.  And isn’t it cool that he’s making money at it!
