The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has awarded the Model X 5-star safety ratings in every one of its nine test categories – a first for an SUV.
Tesla says the car's low-mounted battery pack lends the Model X the lowest roll-over possibility for any SUV.
"More than just resulting in a 5-star rating, the data from NHTSA's testing shows that Model X has the lowest probability of injury of any SUV it has ever tested," Tesla said.
"In fact, of all the cars NHTSA has ever tested, Model X's overall probability of injury was second only to Model S."
Euro NCAP and Australia's ANCAP are yet to assess Tesla's EV SUV, but Euro NCAP has tested the Model S, which received an impressive 5-star safety rating.
The Model X also boasts what Tesla calls a "bioweapon defense mode" that uses a state-of-the-art air filtration system to clean the air as it enters the cabin.
