The Tesla Model S Is So Safe It Broke the Crash-Testing Gear

The Tesla Model S can be the secure means of transport ever checked by the feds. So secure, actually, that as per to the automaker, the full-electric sedan ruined the checking equipment at an autonomous business facility.

Most of the cars get five stars in the Traffic Safety Administration of National Highway frontal crash fortification check and four stars for protection of side impact. But the Model S aced them whole: side, front, rollover and pole. And Tesla perfectly adds in its declaration that throughout a prior roof crush check utilized during justification, the machine disastrous while applying over pressure of 4 G— the similar thing as stacking four of the exciting sedans on peak of the car without breaking the roof.

At the time NHTA supplementary all the necessary scores, it totalled a mutual five stars across the panel — one of the maximum ever recorded for an invention vehicle.

The main reason for the very high marks is not only the stiff arrangement, but the electric drive train. Without any engine up front getting up valuable space of crumple zone, engineers of Tesla were capable to exploit the total amount of sacrificial space, and with the mounted battery oh-so-low in the ground, which improves rigidity all around the occupants. The reverse test of crash— mainly very important given the reverse-facing child jump type of seats — was one better score, without “enduringly disabling damage to the third row residents” thanks in piece to what Tesla calls a “twofold bumper” to soak up extra impact.

And earlier than you request, the lithium-ion battery managed it all with assurance, without any fire or leakage.
