Now in its third year, the 2014 Tesla Model S has no direct competitor. It remains the undisputed top choice in the growing world of plug-in electric cars, and there's a good case to be made that it's the most advanced car of any kind on the planet. The 2014 BMW 7-Series is not just luxurious and comfortable, but exceptionally quick and technologically advanced.
