Tesla cars are among the safest in the world. Tesla Model 3 has recently proven itself worthy of its 5-star safety rating as occupants walk away after the car falls 100ft off the side of a mountain.
Tesla Model 3 had a serious accident when the driver lost control and launched 100 feet down the side of a mountain. Photos from the scene of the accident and the condition of the car look terrifying. The Model 3 looks very damaged, especially in the front and rear, where the most severe impacts were sustained.
At first glance, it seems that the occupants of the car could get very serious injuries, if not worse. However, contrary to the worst expectations, the Model 3 coped with occupant protection flawlessly. According to the report, there were four people in the car and all of them walked away from the accident site on their own, receiving only minor or moderate injuries.
At the moment, there is no official police report on the incident. However, it was reported that the vehicle was not on Autopilot or FSD (Full Self-Driving). Also, Rein Logo said that he is a friend of the people who were in the car. His friends said it was raining at the time of the accident, the car was on summer tires, and the driver lost control.
The NHTSA gave Tesla Model 3 a 5-star rating in rollover, side crash, and frontal crash tests. Tesla vehicles are engineered to be the safest in the world. Each one combines powerful onboard technology with an all-electric design to help protect every driver, passenger, and pedestrian on the road. Engineered with an all-electric architecture, Tesla vehicles provide a very low probability of occupant injury, which has been repeatedly proven in real-world conditions.
