“Customer: Just a quick note on status: In Silicon Valley there are a lot of Tesla S cars on the road and I didn’t figure the Tesla would pull much attention. I couldn’t have been more wrong, I had people following taking pictures, folks approaching me while we made stops, and I could see people checking the car out in the parking lots. It drew attention wherever it went as if it were a supercar. People would even drive by, smile and wave.
The Tesla Model S won awards including the 2013 World Green Car of the Year, 2013 Motor Trend Car of the Year, Automobile magazine’s 2013 Car of the Year, Time Magazine Best 25 Inventions of the Year 2012 award and Consumer Reports top-scoring car in its road testing. In 2015, Car and Driver named the Model S the Car of the Century.”
