With another wave of deliveries in the Netherlands, Tesla Model 3 has become the best-selling auto in the country for the year as it now surpasses 10,000 units.
Tesla Model 3 has a lot to owe to its powertrain design which gives the vehicle a low center of gravity which reduces roll-over risk. Its price starts at $35,000, while the Model X starts at around $81,000 and the Model S starts at around $75,000.
"The fact that the battery can be placed in in a variety of places, maybe with more flexibility than a gas tank, [also] provides the potential to make electric vehicles safer", chief IIHS research officer David Zuby told CNBC.
You can have a look at how the crash test of the Model 3 went in the video attached below. It also needs an available front crash prevention system with an advanced or superior rating and good- or acceptable-rated headlights. "There's no need to trade away safety for a lower carbon footprint when choosing a vehicle". To earn a TOP SAFETY PICK designation, a vehicle or truck must get at least a good rating in the driver-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraint tests, as well as a good or acceptable rating in the passenger-side small overlap test.
