Safest Car On The Road? Telsa Model X

Tesla’s Model X has been awarded the 5-star safety rating across the board following the first independent crash test of the vehicle in two years by The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in the US.

This is a significant achievement for the electric vehicle manufacturer, who were facing questions of safety last year when an owner of a Model S was killed in an accident while the car was in Autopilot mode. In fact, the Model X is the first SUV to receive the federal government’s highest safety rating across the board.

“Model X performs so much better in a crash than gas-powered SUVs because of its all-electric architecture and powertrain design,” said Tesla, writing about the achievement in a blog post. “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.”

The Tesla Model X starts at £79,900.
