Tesla wins Highest Satisfaction Premium Brand Award

For the second year in a row, Tesla managed to maintain its position as the number one premium brand at the 20th Vehicles Satisfactions Awards by AutoPacific.

“Tesla was new to the survey results in 2015 and won the top premium brand award by a considerable margin (23 points). They hold the top spot this year, though Cadillac has closed the gap considerably with the highly satisfying Escalade and increases in owner satisfaction across their lineup,” explains AutoPacific president George Peter.

Overall for 2016, General Motors received the most wins with 7, followed by Kia and Nissan each with 4, Mercedes-Benz with 3, and Hyundai and Toyota each with 2 wins. Volvo, Honda and Tesla each take home 1 win. AutoPacific chose the Cadillac Escalade as the President’s Award winner this year. This award is given only when the overall score tops the previous high score. The previous President’s Award winners were the 2015 Kia K900, 2014 Mercedes S-Class and the 2010 Hyundai Sonata.
