Tesla's Model S Just Won A Major Car Award — Here's Why It's A Big Deal

•, Alex Davies
 It is the first time in the 63-year history of the prestigious award a vehicle with a non-combustion engine has been awarded the prize.

It was also the first time the Motor Trend jury chose a winner by unanimous decision.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk described winning the award as a "pivotal turn in history" after Tesla's "long and difficult journey."

He noted the electric car company's need to ramp up production of its vehicles, but argued that the Motor Trend accolade is proof that electric cars have become the best product on the market.
Tesla has built "the best car of any kind," he said, capable of besting not just other electric vehicles, but gas-powered cars as well.

The Model S, which costs between $58,570 and $107,350, was named Car of the Year by Automobile Magazine and by Yahoo! Autos earlier this month.
