Joke of the year: All-electric Tesla S named "Car of the Year"

In case you didn’t know, with electric cars, the battery is everything. Yet despite all the money spent and 100-plus years of research under scientists’ collective belt, there has been no significant technological advancement with regard to batteries’ cost, range, and efficiency, in terms for American usefulness for today’s electric vehicles.

Motor Trend magazine has chosen a car, which uses a more than a hundred years old failed technology as its "Car of the Year":

Motor Trend magazine has named the Tesla Model S its Car of the Year. The magazine's staff selected the all-electric plug-in luxury car out of a field of 11 finalists that included models such as the Ford Fusion, Porsche 911 and Hyundai Azera.
It is the first time the magazine's Car of the Year award has ever gone to an all-electric car.
Did the editors of Motor Trend forget to mention that the award was given in the "Joke of the year" competition?
