Electric developing quicker than diesel

I was an early adopter of diesel and it was decades before the motoring press rated some models better to drive as oil burners rather than as petrol versions. It is only recently that electric cars hit the market and already an electric car has been declared best in its class against both diesel and petrol class leaders. It is the Tessla S which is best in class. It happens to be battery powered.
