The Tesla Model X has the highest score of five stars in the latest crash tests of Euro NCAP, the European body responsible for crash testing announced on Wednesday.
Although the Tesla Model X has been on the road for a number of years, the model has not been subjected to a crash test before. The electric car recorded a score of 98 percent for the protection of adult occupants. Only the Mazda CX-30 performed better this year.
In addition, the Model X achieved a score of 94 percent on the driver assistance systems component, just like the Tesla Model 3. The Citroën C5 Aircross follows with an appropriate distance of 82 percent. According to the Euro NCAP, the Model X has a chance of being named the safest car in its segment at the end of this year.
The also fully electric Porsche Taycan also achieved five stars, as did the Audi Q7, Ford Kuga, Ford Mondeo, Peugeot 2008, Skoda Octavia, Subaru Forester and Renault Captur.
