Yes, we know, the Model S
isn’t an MPV in the classical sense. However, we’ve granted it special exemption here, and for two reasons. Firstly, it can be had with seven seats
, and it also has a decent amount of space surrounding them. Secondly, and more crucially, it gives you the benefits of electric motoring
, which very few other seven-seaters can do. And if it’s electric motoring
you’re after, this is the very pinnacle. It’s fabulous to drive, with a comfortable ride, brilliant handling, supercar
performance and super-quiet cruising manners, and there’s more technology on board than you can shake a stick at. Importantly, the sophisticated battery gives the Tesla an enormous driving range compared with most other electric cars
, and that makes it a viable proposition for more people. Expensive
, but brilliant.
