The Tesla Model 3 is the safest car ever

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) of the United States has branded the Tesla Model 3 as a 'five star machine' as it smashes strict safety tests.

Tesla had previously said that the new electric car is likely to have the lowest probability of personal injury than any other car they've tested in the event of a collision. This is now officially confirmed by crash-test boffins at the NHTSA.

The Model 3 is Tesla's most affordable car

A Tesla spokesperson said: “But when a crash happens in real life, these test results show that if you are driving a Tesla, you have the best chance of avoiding serious injury.”

Tesla has also mentioned that collisions simulated in the tests are highly unlikely to actually occur thanks to their class-leading autonomous driving capabilities.

The internal structure of the Model 3 is designed to absorb as much impact as possible, resulting in less injury

According to Tesla, cars that drive with the Autopilot engaged crash once every 3.34 million miles, which is significantly better than an industry standard of one crash every 492,000 miles.

The car's batteries are located below the floor of the car, resulting in a 50/50 weight distribution

The Model 3's near-perfect weight distribution helps to keep the car stable, and reduces rotational kinetic energy in the event of a bump.

So, there you have it. If you want the safest car, buy the Model 3. You'll just have to wait for Tesla to fix their delivery issues first.

It'll be interesting to see how it fairs in the Euro NCAP safety tests.

  • Actually I have to say that the Tesla model 3 is the safest car on the world, and not because of the airbags, autopilot... The quality issues are so bad it will take you forever to get your model 3 Tesla, if you can't get it the quality issues can't kill you. 😂
