Watch Tesla’s Model X Ace Rollover Tests in Internal Testing

Watch Tesla?s Model X defy gravity with repeated rollover attempts in an internal test. At this point Tesla is for entertainment purposes only.

In this Twitter video released by Tesla, the Model X is put through hell, showing a platform repeatedly shooting the Model X from a sideways angle onto a raised platform with fine sand to mimic real-world conditions.

Per the comments, the vehicle?s excellent low center of gravity is due to its large, fortified battery embedded into the vehicle floor. The test was performed with two front-row dummies and two second-row heavy bags.

The Model X also excels in crash testing, achieving a five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), winning perfect scores in nine sub-categories including frontal, side, and pole impact tests. Other assessments are also made with the structural integrity of the vehicle, energy absorption, and the effectiveness of its seatbelts and airbags in reducing injury in the event of a crash.
