  • Tesla comes out of a week of bad fire rumours, with a record breaking performance in the NHTSA crash test. The Tesla Model S is the safest car ever tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), scoring five out of a possible five stars in the test.

    As crash-test boasts go, Tesla is claiming a good one: The roof of its Model S electric sedan is apparently so strong that it broke a testing.

    Overall, the electric Model S scored tops in tests for federal ratings.

    I already posted links to support this claim, above; no need to repeat them. I did, however, stumble on this article about Subaru's where the B-Pillar is apparently so strong it presents "unique" extrication challenges. You can see and compare the ratings for other vehicles on the IIHS website. You're right on the money about them though: The go into "protective shutdown" mode, disabling the emission controls at temperatures above 30C and below 20C, rpm above , elevations higher than meters, and speeds over 90mph.

    How does the Tesla Model S fare against a hydraulic roof crusher? A bit of background info will make this video more sensible. Full IIHS test results here. I got my weight figure from Road and Track, but on second look it apparently includes extra pounds which would be the weight of a driver, passenger and gear, or a very heavy driver and gear.

    But we already know that Tesla beefs up the rear end of cars with the rear-facing seat option. But be careful outing your Amigo friends that are illegal! They can be rounded up more frequently now! Tesla seems to be waiting to let the actual test results do the talking. A stronger more rigid safety cage, is safer as it resists greater peak force to prevent roof intrusion. The more G-forces that the roof of the car can withstand, the better your chances of survival.

    To claim otherwise is to be disingenuous. Likewise, if a cement truck tipped over onto your car, you would definately want the highest peak force rating humanly possible. You are truly ignorant in thinking the difference between a 20, lb rating and a 25, lb rating would have had ANY difference in the accidents you posted.

    Tell me again how you think your precious MB can survive a 70, lb cement truck landing on its roof? This one pushes in from the side; I would imagine others push in from other directions. And it does look like I was in this case. I already posted links to support this claim, above; no need to repeat them. The old, well used, worn out, in need of maintenance roof-crush test machine just happened to break while testing the Model S.

    They use a scale of Good, Acceptable, Marginal,and Poor. The ratings of the IIHS are — good, acceptable, marginal or poor. Out of context this test is meaningless. This becomes much more interesting when you see your favourite vehicles or the vehicle you own under the same test. As far as broken machines is concerned it was the roll over machine that had broken.

    You can see and compare the ratings for other vehicles on the IIHS website. The machine previously tested other cars with much stronger roofs than a Model S. The machine broke because it was worn and well used, and probably needed maintenance. It could have broke due to something as simple as a burst rubber hydraulic line.

    Then the test results are, by definition, unknown. They crash tested the 60 before the PD went into production. You are wrong-headedly implying that higher and higher numbers like the MB automatically imply better and better real world crash results. Quick math test for you. Which roof would collapse, the car that was tested at 20K, the one that tested at 25K, or the one that tested at 30K? It is a trick question, because none of the roofs will collapse. See, this is exactly your problem.

    Because the survival rate for both is exactly the same. That is like people who say they would have been killed if they were wearing a seatbelt, claiming that wearing a seatbelt is statistically less safe than not wearing a seatbelt. Yet again you prove my point. What is the difference in survival rate between: Yet again a trick question.

    The survival rate is the same. Silly Sven would have all roofs of cars rated at 70, lbs!! What a silly, silly donkey. At least Pushy can admit it when he is wrong. Perhaps you can explain to Pu-Pu the difference between correlation and causation as it relates to roof crushing machine breaking during a test on the Model S. He has trouble with simple math.
