The company Tesla has another reason to be proud of their achievements. The national Directorate of traffic safety on highways of the USA (National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, NHTSA) awarded the Tesla Model X crossover is the highest rating: 5 stars in each category of tests. This makes the Model X the most secure at the moment, the car in the SUV segment on the roads.
Each version of the Model X — 60D, 75D, 90D, 100D and P90D — did well in tests for resistance to frontal impact, side impact, rollover and overall safety.
Experts NHTSA failed to overturn the Model X in the dynamic tests. According to estimates by the NHTSA, the probability of rollover of the electric vehicle in the event of an accident is only 9.3 %. One of the main factors in the high stability Model X roll, of course, is shifted downward the center of gravity due to the location of the battery pack under the cabin floor.
“Of all the cars ever tested by NHTSA, Model X gives the probability of injuries only to the model S, — stated in a press release from Tesla. — In the event of a serious incident passengers of Model X likely to do without serious injury amounts to 93 % — is evidence of our commitment to creating the safest cars on the roads“.
NHTSA conducted the first crash test of Tesla Model X crossover, a video of which is posted on the YouTube channel CrashNet1.
