Tesla is driving home with a "perceived quality" award for its Model S electric sedan.

Strategic Vision, a research outfit in southern California, has named the Tesla Model S as having the highest score among any vehicle in its latest Total Quality Index.

"Tesla built a vehicle that generated love in attributes that were most important to segment buyers," says Christopher Chaney, a Strategic Vision senior vice president, in a statement.
