Should the Mercedes S550 Be Worried About the Tesla Model S?

Comparison

Or have we got that the wrong way around?

At first it may seem like an impossible comparison. One of these cars is an EV while the other is powered by a twin-turbo V8. However, both are jam packed with technology and give off a sense of “yeah, I’ve made it big in the world.” The new Mercedes-Benz S500 and the Tesla Model S are two hot-selling large luxury sedans that appeal to many of the same potential customers. Each one, especially when fully-loaded, costs well over $100k.

And, of course, each has its downsides. But in a direct head-to-head comparison, Motor Trend managed to pick a winner. So is it even possible to directly compare an EV to a gasoline-powered car? Has Tesla finally surpassed Mercedes’ flagship? Check out the video to find out.
