Tesla is indeed a big name when we talk about American Automakers. And Tesla is not just an automobile industry but an energy storage company as well as a solar panel manufacturer based in Palo Alto, California. After conducting independent testing, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced that it has awarded Model X a 5-star safety rating in every category including all the sub-category.
And the best part about this whole thing is that it is the first SUV ever to earn the 5-star rating across the board. Watch the video of Crash test:

Tesla said, “Model X performs so much better in a crash than gas-powered SUVs 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 creating 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.”
And to our surprise among the nine subcategories rated by NHTSA, Model X achieved 5-stars in every category and sub-category. These subcategories include frontal impact, side impact, and pole impact tests which were conducted on both the driver and passenger side. This was even tested for rollover test and performed well. Let’s elaborate— in the case of a serious crash, people sitting inside Model X have an overall 93% probability of walking away without a serious injury. This is a true testament of Tesla’s commitment to manufacturing safe cars that can run on the road. We are really proud of them.
