Is Motor Trend's naming of the Model S as the 2013 Car of the Year the watershed moment for electric vehicles? The editors at the magazine say the model beat back rivals in a variety of categories including a direct comparison of the power of the car's electric powertrain against internal combustion engine peers. Scoring high on safety, design, and driveability - the most telling characteristic was the car exceeded the equivalent gas mileage ratings on test runs and made a Vegas-to-LA trip on a single charge. Is TSLA a buy or does the 31M short interest position in the stock say more than gushing reviews?
