In a move sure to shock the auto world, Motor Trend has named a startup company's plug-in electric vehicle as its coveted Car of the Year. The winner: Tesla's Model S sedan.
What's more, it wasn't even close: Motor Trend says it was first time time "in memory" that every judge agreed. In order to win for 2013, the Tesla had to beat luxury sedans like Lexus GS and BMW 3 Series and sports car like Porsche 911 and Subaru BRZ.

I wonder with electric cars in the frigid cold of canada going to -30 how well do those electric batteries actually work .
I remember from when I was in sheet metal my drill didn't hold a charge worth a crap nor did anyone else cordless tools .
Top honors went to the Volkswagen Up! which was declared the World Car of the Year. It beat out 34 other models as well as two finalists - the BMW 3-Series and Porsche 911 - to win the prestigious award.
