Tesla Model S Crash Test

Tesla Model S Crash Test

The NHTSA recently crash tested the Tesla Model S in Frontal, Side and Side Pole accident.

No surprises here, as the Model S aced all tests with 5 stars, just as Tesla CEO Elon Musk had promised it would.

As you probably know "Model S is engineered with the intent to achieve 2013 five-star NHTSA safety ratings," according to Tesla.

Strong construction and high mass seems to (according to video descriptions) assist the Model S in achieving the coveted Five Star rating.

Cringe-worthy videos found further down below, though we should note that never before have we seen a vehicle remain so intact and unfazed by these impacts.   6 Star?
