Verdict – Sportscars are fast but come with bad drinking habits and that is where the Tesla Model S pitches in. It is fast as well as frugal and this makes it one of the best sedans in the market right now because you can have the fun you would normally have in a sports car yet not feel the guilt. When launched in India, the Tesla Model S will give a tough fight to performance cars and diesel limousines as it offers the best of both worlds.
