Default Re: Tesla Model S - Best Safety Rating Ever!

All-Wheel Drive Tesla Model S Mule Reportedly Spotted .

Moreover, this could spawn an even faster variant of the all-electric sedan, which could not only be given more power, but also more grip off the line and through the corners - torque vectoring and all-wheel drive electric cars go hand in hand.

Tesla's plan to avoid potential fire issues had last year.

The last GIF show's an alternator, which is easily around 1.5 LBS and inspires confidence. Wish other manufacturers follow this trend to share /open about test results of such safety issues and recalls.

Tesla Motors has another hoop to jump through this time. Yes it finally happened .

First Lemon Law Suit filed against Tesla Motors in Milwaukee, WI. The suit was filed be "Vince Megna" apparently won a tough fight against Mercedes-Benz.

Quote:
The filing itself says one Robert Montgomery bought his Model S Performance model in March 2013 for $94,770, and over the next several months had myriad problems with the car — from dashboard failures to power door handles that wouldn't open to simply not turning on. In total, Megna says the car was out of service for 66 days — and because Tesla relies on its own service centers rather than dealers, it often had to be towed to Chicago for repairs.

Come out strong Tesla !!

By driving it, Brad Pitt joins the Hollywood tree hugging elite, right up there with DiCaprio, who's been Tesla's #1 supporter since day 1.

An Interesting perspective from the Tesla's side on this issue. The highlight of this investigation is Tesla can track when the doors and front trunks are opened and closed.

Eager to see how this pans out.

The Model S lodged itself under the truck and despite the severity of the impact, the driver reportedly was able to get himself out of the car and walk to safety – though his injuries were described as “serious,” but not critical.

The vehicle crashed into a truck used to shield a construction site that a company was about to set up. The speed of the Tesla at the time of the impact was described as “tremendous” by a local news report, which is not uncommon on the German Autobahn where speed is mostly unrestricted.
Insane! Wish such safety levels are within our reach too. Downside then lot of those drivers might put others in danger.

2017 Tesla Model S and BMW I3 Isn’t Worthy Of IIHS Safety Award!

Quote:
Both the Model S and i3 were refreshed for the 2017 model year with better styling or bigger batteries, respectively. Well, what Tesla Motors and BMW alike failed to do, however, is to impress the IIHS
