Elon Musk: After 344 Million Miles, There Has Been No “Serious Permanent Injury” Or Death In A Tesla Model S
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has long stated that safety is Tesla’s primary concern. In fact, Musk says that the track record for safety of the Tesla Model S is “certainly one of our proudest achievements.”
So, what’s that track record for Model S safety look like?
Well, according to Musk, Tesla Model S owners have covered well over 344 million miles. Though there’s been dozens (maybe even hundreds) of wrecked Model S sedans, none of the occupants suffered from “serious permanent injury” or worse yet death in any of the accidents involving a Model S.
That’s a track record for safety to be proud of, even though it’ll undoubtedly change at some point in the future.
We personally believe safety to be paramount in designing an automobile, so props to Tesla for making the safest vehicle in the world.
