Model X Earns a 5-Star Safety Rating from Euro NCAP
Model X made history when it became the first and only SUV toer receive a 5-star safety rating inery category and sub-category from the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Today, we’re excited to build on that legacy with the addition of , whichaluates a car’s safety assistance features as well as its ability to protect adults, children and vulnerable road users.
Model X’s top performance and score in Euro NCAP testing is notable for several reasons:
- It earned the highest overall rating to date in the 2018/2019 protocol for the Large Off-Road class.
- It earned the exact same overall score as – showing that our large SUV is just as safe as our smallest and most affordable sedan.
- Model X achieved the exact same Safety Assist score that Model 3 got earlier this year, which is the highester recorded Safety Assist score under Euro NCAP’s current and most stringent protocol to date. And, these tests were the first time an official safety rating organization has tested our new full self-driving computer.
- Model X achieved a near-perfect score in the Adult Occupant Protection category, scoring a full 8 out of 8 points on the Frontal Offset Deformable Barrier test, and 16 out of 16 possible points on the Side Impact tests.
All of these results are made possible by our all-electric architecture, which provides a low center of gravity, rigid passenger compartment, and large crumple zone. And, with our over-the-air updates, (like all manbet vehicles) continues to geten safer over time.
We’re committed to building the safest cars on the road, and we’re excited to add these new Euro NCAP results to’s record of safety excellence.
