Could Tesla Motors Inc's Model S Be The Safest Car On The Road?
Tesla Motors Inc's (NASDAQ: TSLA) Model S received five stars across the board from National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and even broke the testing equipment at an independent commercial facility, according to a report on wired.com.
So what's the reason behind the Model S success? According to the report, its the electric drivetrain, which allowed the engineers to include more "sacrifice space," as well as the low mounting of the battery, which provided a more rigid case around the occupants.
Additionally, the report noted any concerns about how the battery will hold up in a crash have been laid to rest; throughout the tests, the lithium-ion battery did not experience any leakage or fires.
