Tesla Model X Superior Safety Once Again Proven In Unfortunate Accident

Tesla Model X Superior Safety Once Again Proven In Unfortunate Accident

There was a violent crash in Lackawanna County yesterday, which left at least two people injured. The frightening accident was caught on camera.

It happened just before 9 am on Route 11 in South Abington Township. The white sedan collided at high speed into the Model X, which had been stopped at a traffic light. The driver of the white car crawled out of the front windshield with several cuts on his head and arms. The woman in Model X waited in her car until paramedics arrived. Her injuries are unknown. As you can see from the video, despite the high impact force, the Model X did not roll over.

Tesla's Model X was the first SUV to receive a perfect crash-test rating. Unlike most SUVs, which tend to roll over with ease, the Model X continues to return to an upright position. Avoiding roll-over provides critical added protection to passengers. Here's why the Model X was the first SUV to receive a perfect crash-test rating.

SUVs are notorious for having a high center of gravity that causes them to roll over when put into tight maneuvering situations, or a side impact. Rollovers can result in the partial or full ejection of passengers from the vehicle, increasing the chances of injury or death.

The NHTSA has awarded the Model X a 5-star safety rating in each category and subcategory. It is the first SUV to receive a 5-star rating across the board. Model X outperforms gas-powered SUVs in accident-safety because of its all-electric architecture and powertrain design.

The rigid, fortified battery pack that powers Model X is mounted beneath the floor of the vehicle. This creates a center of gravity so low that Model X has the lowest rollover probability of any SUV on the road. No other SUV has ever come close to meeting and exceeding this rollover requirement.
