Tesla and the Model 3 have the highest satisfaction ratings among car owners

Model 3

Tesla and the Model 3 have come out on top in the Global Happy Motorist Index, which seeks to measure how satisfied customers are with their car and the brand overall.

The study, conducted by Zutobi, an online driver education resource, compared owner ratings from four different review sites including Parkers, HonestJohn, Autotrader, and Edmunds.

The car with the highest owner rating was the Model 3, which had an average score across the four different review sites of 4.53 out of 5, making it the only EV to be featured in the top 50 vehicles.

Next was the Volvo XC40 and Ford Puma, each with scores of 4.5 and 4.43 respectively.

The strong showing by the Model 3 helped to propel Tesla to the top of the list for car brands with the highest owner rating of 4.53 out of 5.

Behind Tesla was Land Rover (4.30) and Mazda (4.30).

At the bottom of the list was Nissan (3.76), Mercedes-Benz (3.75), and Malaysia’s Perodua (2.8).

These findings corroborate those from other publications and confirms that Tesla owners are the most satisfied among all car owners.

Tesla, with the Model 3, Model Y, and Model S ranked in the top three spots of J.D. Power’s latest U.S. Electric Vehicle Experience Ownership Study.

That satisfaction extends beyond the car itself. Tesla has also been rated as having the best mobile app.
