The 2017 Tesla Model S was put up as a finalist for the Motor Trend Car of The Year, a title which it first won in 2013. This time around it is the turn of the 60/75kWh version.
The Chevrolet Bolt EV also made it onto that list of finalists so it was competing against the Tesla Model S. however one vehicle that was left out was the Chevy Volt as while it did make it to the competition it didn’t manage to be a finalist.
The Tesla Model S 60 does offer up a great deal and this is a superb upgrade from the 60kWh to the 75kWh engine by way of a software update. If you buy the 60kWh it comes in $8, 500 cheaper but you can upgrade to the 75kWh any time but it would cost you $9,000 to do so.
It was good news that the Tesla Model S and the Chevrolet Bolt EV were both competing against each other as finalists for the COTY awards. However many people were surprised to find that the Chevrolet Volt wasn’t a finalist thanks to the fact that it has been the second best-selling vehicle in the electric category in the US.
