The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or the NHTSA gave Tesla Model X a five-star crash rating making it the safest ever SUV in the history of crash tests. Note that Model X is an electric SUV under the company Tesla lead by Elon Musk.
The crash test included every type of crash possible, be it head on, horizontally or sideways and the vehicle passed all these tests with flying colors.
Tesla gave a statement as to why Model X passed with five-star rating and why it is the safest SUV. They said that the fact that it is an electric vehicle gave it a plus point. The center of gravity of Model X is very low due to the placement of it’s battery beneath the floor, hence minimising the probability of it rolling over.
They also claimed that if a Model X is involved in a serious accident, there’s a 93% chance that the passengers and driver would survive without sustaining any serious injuries.
The crash test can be viewed on YouTube where they have shown the condition of the vehicle from different angles. However there’s only a couple of tests shown in the video and there were more through which the vehicle had gone through.
Well you have to pay a hefty price in order to get the Safest SUV ever which comes around to be $80,000.
