Jay Leno’s opinion on cars matters to a lot of people, and with good reason, as he always knows what he’s talking about, and always seems to ask the right questions – the same questions any ‘car guy’ would ask, if faced with the same situation.

The latest car he’s tested is really special – the Tesla Model S, a car which is slowly gaining recognition and appreciation, all throughout the automotive world. As others before have said, Jay liked its styling, interior, ease of use, comfort, quality, and of course, the stunning performance – he even does a burnout, right at the end of the video.

He is also impressed by the range of the car, as well as Tesla’s new Supercharger charging stations, which now allow inter-city travel in the Model S, giving the car an extra 240 km (150 miles) of range, for 30 minutes of charging.

Jay tested the highest-spec car, with the largest battery pack, which has a theoretical maximum range of 480 km (300 miles), yet even the smaller battery packs will often suffice for those who only drive their car in town.
