Tesla Model X Dubbed Safest SUV Ever, Passes Every Safety Test with 5-Star Rating

Among the automotive brands that have been stirring up the most controversy as of late, you can definitely say that Tesla is one near the top of that list. This time, however, we aren’t here to talk about the autopilot feature included with these cars that has really stirred the pot recently or anything that Elon Musk has been talking about or Tweeting that found its way to the news, but instead another feature entirely that seems to have come from out of left field. Let’s just say that if you hop inside of a Tesla Model X, you will soon be in one of the safest SUVs on the road.

It just kind of comes as a part of the nature of the beast that, with a platform like an SUV, the design of these vehicles tends to be a little bit heavier up top than most others. Therefore, as you can imagine, it could be hard to prevent such a vehicle from rolling over should you lose control of it and have the vehicle end up going sideways. Therefore, safety ratings in this metric generally show a struggle with the SUV category.

However, on the contrary, it seems like the Model X definitely seems to thrive in this category as a video of the crash testing was recently released that shows the Model X repeatedly being forced sideways into a sand pit and increasing rates of speed attempting to cause it to roll over and repeatedly failing.

With this testing, the Model X officially became the first ever SUV to achieve an NHTSA 5-Star safety rating in every category and subcategory. As a vehicle with an insane amount of technology on board to draw you in an gather your interest, adding on this extra layer of safety that is one of the most important parts of any vehicle, you really see how the Tesla SUV might just be taking one step closer to being the ultimate driving machine, depending on who you’re asking, of course.
