Tesla Model Y gets 5-star safety rating from NHTSA

Tesla said on Wednesday its Model Y, mid-size Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV), got a 5-star safety rating in every category from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The company stated it expects similar results for all Model Y variants, including Performance AWD and single motor, rear-wheel-drive variants.

According to the company, this means that in the event of a collision, Model Y is distributing crash forces around the cabin and away from vehicle occupants, reducing the risk of injury.

"Model Y has a rollover risk of 7.9%, the lowest of any SUV recorded to date by the organization. As with all Tesla vehicles, Model Y’s architecture is fundamentally designed to have a very low center of gravity, which is accomplished by strategically placing its heavy battery pack and electric motors low down in the vehicle," the company said adding that safety is at the core of every Tesla vehicle.
