Earlier this month, Consumer Reports once again named electric-car maker Tesla Motors (NASDAQ:TSLA) the most-loved car brand, with the brand’s 91% overall owner-satisfaction rating trouncing every other car maker on the planet. Indeed, second-place Porsche was a wide seven percentage points behind. And third-place Audi trailed Tesla by a whopping 14 percentage points. Topping off Tesla’s high brand score, CR also said both of Tesla’s vehicle models — S and X — had exceptionally high customer satisfaction scores on their own.
Here’s a closer look.

Tesla’s customer satisfaction
So, how exactly are CR’s ratings derived? CR explains:
Our brand rankings represent owner sentiment across each brand’s product line. (Model satisfaction is determined by the percentage of owners who responded “definitely yes” to the question of whether they would buy the same vehicle if they had it to do all over again.) To determine brand love — or disdain — we took a straight average of the satisfaction score for each brand’s models.
