Auto CAR compare Tesla to Aston Martin


Thanks to AutoCAR for playing with and penning a decent review, for once.

They enjoy the Tesla S and an Aston Martin Rapide S as a comparison. 

It’s primarily a Model S review. In summary, the reviewer is blown away (his words) and concludes that the Aston seems ‘really, really old fashioned’ in comparison. And, of course, the S easily bests the Rapide in a straight line comparison. Beyond the accolades it’s a nicely produced review and there doesn’t seem to be an agenda.

The reviewer also notes that for about the same range, the S costs about £4.5 per charge versus about £120 in fuel for the Rapide. Wow.

Well worth a watch.
