Earlier this month Automobile Magazine named the Tesla Model S its Automobile of the Year and now Motor Trend has given Tesla's sedan its highest honor by naming it its, 2013 Car of the Year. To take top honors, Model S garnered a unanimous vote from the panel of Motor Trend judges and guest judges. This is the first time in Motor Trend's memory that every judge was in unanimous agreement.

"Our aspiration with the Model S was to show that an electric car truly can be better than any gasoline car, which is a critical step towards the widespread adoption of sustainable transport," said Elon Musk, Tesla Motors co-founder and CEO. "Nothing illustrates this more clearly than winning Motor Trend's Car of the Year by unanimous decision against a field of exceptional competitors."
