Tesla Model S survives ‘one in a million’ traffic accident virtually unscathed



It is no secret that Teslas are one of the safest vehicles in the road today. Being assembled out of a hybrid of aluminum and also ultra-high strength steel, Tesla’s electrical cars can take a beating. Because of their all-electric design, the vehicles also feature generous crush zones to safeguard its passengers from the event of an accident. From time to time, however, Teslas get involved in traffic incidents which are so uncommon, they need to be seen to be believed.

Take this particular accident shared with the Beverly Hills Police Department in their Instagram accounts, for example. Before 2018 finished, the BHPD published an image that pretty much seemed nearly like it was photoshopped. The picture featured the wake of an incident between a Subaru SUV crashing into a parked Tesla Model S. According to the BHPDthey had been advised that the driver of the Subaru swerved to prevent a monster on the road, which caused the SUV to slide and roll . Regrettably for its Tesla, it was parked on the Route of their SUV.

But how you ask? Wonderful question! The driver of the Subaru “swerved to prevent a fox or a dog. ” Oh incidentally, the Tesla window did not even break. 🚔🤔🚔😳🚔😲 #accident #crash #real #truestory #hollywood #stunt #driving #fox #dog #beverlyhills #police #cops #subaru #tesla #thinblueline #lawenforcement #elonmusk #suv #lucky #oneinamillion

The Beverly Hills Police Department noticed that luckily, the odd accident did not result in any injuries. Therefore, while the wake of the episode teases what could quite well happen to be a frightening scene (particularly because of the driver of the Subaru), the BHPD said that they only assisted with the exchange of information for the parties involved.

Perhaps most notable about the accident, however, was the state of the Tesla Model S after the SUV virtually mounted it. The Subaru’s front wheel landed on the all-electric Condo ’s back window, but despite this, not one of the Model S’ glass components broke. The BHPD deemed the accident so remarkable; they dubbed it “one in a million. ” Due to the shortage of damage in the electric vehicle, many users on the social networking platform also praised the Model S for its toughness. It requires a fairly durable automobile, after all, even to endure this kind of accident without even a busted window. 

Tesla’s electrical cars aren’t any stranger to bizarre accidents. Back in September, a Tesla Model X traveling at West Houston became the victim of a falling plane. Throughout the episode, an aircraft owned by the Drug Enforcement Agency has been forced to make an emergency landing, causing it to land on the road. Since it was landing, the plane clipped the Model X, ripping off part of the all-electric SUV’s front end. Due to the vehicle’s toughness, the occupants of these Model X were virtually unscathed.

Tesla, for its own part, has been participating in a consistent effort to ensure that its cars are among the most powerful cars on the road today. So far, the company was success, with security features like a built-in dashcam being rolled out via a totally free over-the-air software update. Even the Model 3, Tesla’s newest and most ambitious vehicle thus far, continues to be granted a flawless 5-Star Safety Rating across all categories and categories by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Even the Model 3’s headlights even received the approval of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), a group which uses exceptionally strict metrics to value the protection of vehicles’ lights.
