Tesla has done it again. Just like the Model S before it, the all-electric Model X has scored a 5-star rating in all categories following a crash test conducted by the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Tesla proudly shared news of the achievement in a blog post: "We engineered Model X to be the safest SUV ever, and today, the [NHTSA] announced that after conducting independent testing, it has awarded Model X a 5-star safety rating in every category and sub-category, making it the first SUV ever to earn the 5-star rating across the board."
In addition to receiving the highest safety rating, the Model X also set a new standard for injury risk.
"More than just resulting in a 5-star rating, the data from NHTSA's testing shows that Model X has the lowest probability of injury of any SUV it has ever tested," according to Tesla's blog post.
