The Tesla Model 3 Just Set A New Benchmark

The Tesla Model 3 Just Set A New Benchmark

Sure enough, a week later, Musk himself insisted at Tesla's annual shareholder meeting that there was no demand problem, adding that orders and sales "for the Model S, X, and 3 [were] outpacing production" and giving them a "decent shot" at setting fresh records for production and deliveries.

Especially with the latter rating, it is worth looking into the details: As the Model 3 has no active bonnet, there are areas on the vehicle where a pedestrian or cyclist can hit quite hard. Now, people can start associating the words "safety" and "speed" to the brand as the Model 3 reportedly set new records for being one of the safest cars today, as well as breaking previous records for being the fastest EV on a race track.

In addition to safety sensors, the structural integrity and occupant restraint systems also contributed to the top safety test for the vehicle.

The electric automaker soundly beat previous records and analysts' estimates in Q2 2019, delivering 92,500 cars for the quarter ending June 30 and producing 87,048 units. Tesla is also reported to have received more orders than the number of cars it delivered.

Watch the two crash-test videos below... Although the service had been part of Tesla, it still remains a bit obscure to most observers of the company.

It isn't a completely clean sweep, mind.

"Model 3, right now, that's the lynch pin in terms of the growth going forward", he said. Although the company has many models, the Model 3 is the company's bread and butter since it accounts for around 70% of its total revenues. The Tesla's 94% score in 2019 Safety Assist tests is the best yet under Euro NCAP's most recent protocol.

All in all, it's another vote of confidence for Tesla.

Both the GLE and the B-Class scored five stars, representing Mercedes-Benz's tenth and eleventh straight top ratings since 2014. A auto shopping researcher agreed with Musk as well.
