    UNDATED (CNN) -- Tesla's "Model S" is Motor Trend's Car of the Year.

    It's the first time the magazine's award has gone to an all-electric car.

    The plug-in luxury car topped the list of 11 contenders that included models such as the Ford Fusion, Porsche 911 and Hyundai Azera.

    To be eligible, contenders must be a car, not an SUV or truck, and must be completely new or substantially redesigned for the new model year.

    The Model S ranges in price from $50,000 to nearly $100,000.
