As expected, the electric SUV has managed to follow the lead of its older brothers, the Tesla Model Y has become the fourth car in Tesla’s lineup to achieve the maximum rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The Model Y benefited from sharing the exceptional platform used for producing the Model S, Model X, and, Model 3, allowing the car to be as safe as the others. The Model Y has the lowest rollover risk of any SUV ever recorded by the NHTSA, this is clearly due to he low center of gravity provided by the batteries placed in the SUV’s floor, which results on an impressive 7.9% rollover risk.
Other notable qualities are the large crumple zones and the rigid body structure, which provide great protection in the event of a collision.
