Tesla cars are the best example of exactly what an electric vehicle should be, and the pleasure of its owning experience untouchable. This is confirmed by the JD Power EV Experience Ownership Study, in which Tesla makes up the Top Four spots.
The overall “EVX” ownership index score measures electric vehicle owners' satisfaction (on a 1,000-point scale) in premium and mass-market segments across seven categories: accuracy of stated battery range; availability of public charging stations; battery range; the cost of ownership; driving enjoyment; ease of charging at home; and vehicle quality and reliability.
“While early adopters of EVs say they’ll remain loyal to EVs in general, staying with the same brand is not a sure thing. Auto manufacturers will have to keep EV owners and shoppers interested in their products beyond just the cost equation. With automakers expected to flood the market with EV launches during the next three years, to capture a share of the market they need to offer vehicles that evoke excitement and meet owners’ broader needs,” said Brent Gruber, senior director of global automotive at J.D. Power. By the looks of it, Tesla knows how to keep consumers' attention and delight them with a better in industry ownership experience.
Tesla Model S ranks highest overall, and highest in the premium BEV segment with 798 points out of a possible 1,000 points. Tesla Model 3 comes in second with 790 points. Overall satisfaction in the premium segment is 782. Tesla Model Y takes 3rd place with 780 points. Tesla Model X is ranked 4th with 758 points.

The main selection criteria were: range, charging, driving pleasure, and economy. The combination of advantages for all of these criteria in Tesla cars made them the winners in this study, and in the EV market in general.
