Another Tesla crash.

When is the NTSB going to learn? When will they stop the madness?

Also, look at the airbags. They did not deflate just like the other wreck when the Tesla burned it's owner to death after by-standers could not get the door open.


What madness? Can you name any vehicle that has never been involved in an accident or had someone inside get hurt.

Tesla's Model 3 has been named the safest car ever made.

The Model 3 achieved a perfect 5-star rating in every category on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's crash tests.

Tesla's Model S and X cars hold second and third place, making the company the highest rated car company by the agency.

And, it has outsold Mercedes Benz for the first time ever.

So said Tesla...

From Bloomberg Oct. 2018. NHTSA response to Tesla's blog post claim.

Last month, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) issued its overall safety rating for the Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) Model 3. Like its older siblings, the Model S and the Model X, Model 3 received a perfect five-star rating in every category and subcategory of NHTSA's testing. The new model then went one better.

According to a Tesla blog post, Model 3 demonstrated the lowest probability of injury of all cars the NHTSA has ever tested. The agency's data showed that Model 3 occupants are less likely to get seriously hurt in a front, side or rollover crash than in any other car. Tesla's Model S and Model X rank second and third, respectively.

The company noted that the vehicle tested was the Model 3 Long Range Rear-Wheel Drive 4-door version, but that Tesla expects "similar results" for other versions of the car, including the dual-motor versions.

Tesla touted the design of Model 3:

In side crashes, Model 3 posted the lowest intrusion from side pole impact of a vehicle tested by NHTSA, the company noted. And while NHTSA standards require that cars be able to withstand three times their own weight in a rollover crash, Tesla's own testing shows that Model 3 can withstand loads more than four times its own weight.

Safest car ever? Tesla may have a legitimate claim to the title.

Tesla, the only company with a full line of 5 star rated vehicles.

The fact Elon attempted to twist the results to read in a way that no testing agency reports results.

Real news: the vehicle received the highest marks for the testing performed.

Fake news: Elon states the safest vehicle ever tested.

These two statements do not mean the same thing.

Tesla busted at bait and switch. Just wait and wait....Hey you want to upgrade?

When is someone going to step in and stop the bait and switch tactics?

The SEC train is pulling into the station next week some time. It's a little late because the train driver gave lying and contemptuous Elon a second chance. Lying Elon showed the train driver the you're #1 sign! [emoticon]
