The 2017 Tesla Model S has been in the running for the title of Motor Trend Car of the Year. This isn’t the first time that it has been in the running as it was in 2013. This time around it’s the variation that offers the 60/75kWh battery that has gone up for the title in 2017.
The Chevrolet Bolt EV was also alongside it for a chance at the title but the Volt has been ignored as the vehicle didn’t manage to make it to the finalist list, even though it was entered as a competitor.
Of course the Tesla Model S 60 is a superb vehicle and you can easily upgrade it from 60kWh to 75kWh by way of OTA software updates. This means that you can initially pay out for the base version of the vehicle and then make the upgrade at any time that you choose by paying out $9,000.
The Tesla Model S and the Chevrolet Bolt EV both stood side by side with the chance to win the title of Car of the Year, but what was a big surprise to many people was the fact that the Chevrolet Volt didn’t manage to become a finalist along with them.
