2017 Tesla Model X Frontal Crash Test

Frontal crash test for 2017 Tesla Model X 75D

NHTSA New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) Frontal Impact:
The frontal crash test evaluates injury to the head, neck, chest, and legs of the driver and front seat passenger. Crash test dummies representing an average-sized adult male and a small-sized adult female are placed in the driver and front passenger seats, respectively, and are secured with seat belts. Vehicles are crashed into a fixed barrier at 35 mph (56.3km/h), which is equivalent to a head-on collision between two similar vehicles each moving at 35 mph. 1 star is the lowest rating; 5 stars is the highest. More stars equal safer cars.

Overall Rating: 5-Star
Frontal Crash Rating: 5-Star
Side Crash Rating: 5-Star
Rollover Rating: 5-Star

Tesla Model X is the first SUV ever to achieve 5-Star in every category and sub-category.

In our 15th school bus crash test, we set up the test dummies (ATDs) to reflect out of position students, and added backpacks and a cooler to simulate what would happen in a frontal impact with regards to compartmentalization.
