Tesla's Model S Sedan, Safest Car of All Time.

By -

In a press release by Tesla, the company announced that their Model S Sedan is the safest car ever tested. In independent testing by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Model S received a 5-star safety rating overall and in every subcategory. The car was so safe it out-scored the standard NHTSA 5-star overall rating, wrote Elon Musk, who Bloomberg Businessweek reported personally penned the release. The Model S actually achieved a combined score of 5.4 — which is in fact possible, Mashable noted.

Tesla has only released one car before this one, which makes this an even more remarkable feat. There were two particular notes in the release :

  • When testing the car’s rollover risk, “the Model S refused to turn over via the normal methods and special means were needed to induce the car to roll”
  • When testing how much force it would take to crush the roof of a Model S, the Model S roof broke the machine.

As Tesla seeks sildenafildosage to expand its consumer base, there’s one small snag that may keep some buyers from making the switch to electric. Tesla’s Model S has a base price of just over $62,000.
