How strong is the Model 3 glass roof? Tesla owner Bernie Daigle discovered the answer to this when he tried to avoid a collision with another car that, as you can see in the video below, pulled out in front of him. He managed to avoid the collision with the car, but his Model 3 wound up being put to the ultimate test


Don’t Be A Dummy, Buy A Tesla Model 3 If You Value Your Family’s Safety!

September 22nd, 2019 | by Paul Fosse

A few days ago, we wrote about Tesla earning the Top safety score (TOP SAFETY PICK+) from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). I had publicly asked them last month why they hadn't yet tested the car and was happy to get a reply that they were working on it. I'm not surprised how things turned out


IIHS: Tesla Model 3 Earns Top Safety Score In All 8 Test Categories

September 19th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The Tesla Model 3 won the IIHS's TOP SAFETY PICK+ award, which means that the car achieved the top score in all 8 test categories. You cannot get a better score. While this is a tremendous achievement, it's also not surprising. The Model 3 already achieved the best safety score ever from the NHTSA, and we know that it is the safety leader due to abundant crumple zones, market-leading active safety features, extremely strong doors and a similarly strong roof, a low center of gravity that keeps the car stable, and tremendous traction control


Tesla — Vertical Integration Is Value Integration

August 26th, 2019 | by Alex Voigt

There is nothing vertical in vertical integration, and nothing horizontal in horizontal integration, and the integration is not really what vertical integration is about. In short, it’s a bad name for a complex matter. The last time I intended to write an article about it, something else flew out of the 6 fingers I usually write with and I don’t know really why but people liked it, so therefore I declare it was a good story despite my own opinion, which does not really count. If I learned one thing about writing, it is, trust your readers, follow your fingers, and don’t look back — and most important of all, don’t listen to your own judgement


Breaking! IIHS To Crash Test Tesla Model 3 Next Week

August 7th, 2019 | by Paul Fosse

First, the bad news. Negative headlines are everywhere today, as the NHTSA has sent a letter to Tesla to stop claiming that the Tesla Model 3 has the lowest probability of injury of any car tested by


Why Tesla Model 3 Is The Safest Car On The Planet (Video)

June 26th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

As most Tesla fans already know, Tesla’s vehicles are the safest on the road. The Model 3 is the safest car ever tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), whose testing procedures determined Tesla’s newest car has the lowest probability of injury in a collision of any of the over 900 cars NHTSA has tested. In second place is Model S, and in third — you guessed it — Model


Our New Tesla Myths Page

June 23rd, 2019 | by Vijay Govindan

As part of my efforts to fight untrue Tesla myths, I recently engaged the Tesla community to create a Tesla Myth Busters FAQ page. I sent out a call to “assemble a full-fledged myth-busting campaign,” and people responded. We simply want to set the record straight regarding various Tesla myths. Thanks to the Tesla community who heeded my call, this first draft was produced in just four days, which is astonishing and wonderful when you think about it


5 Ways Buying A Tesla Model 3 Saves Lives, & How Much Is Your Family’s Safety Worth?

January 27th, 2019 | by Paul Fosse

This article will focus on Tesla safety, and specifically the safety of the Tesla Model 3. This piece, however, takes a broader look of safety than previous articles. Here at CleanTechnica, we have written a lot about how EVs are safer and why. In fact, I encourage you to read the free report on electric vehicle safety advantages and disadvantages we've published. But there's often more to cover on this topic, and more ways to integrate the various findings
