A Tesla Cuts Into Two From A Crash
A car crash involving a Nissan GT-R and a Tesla Model X left the Tesla completely cut in half, while the front of the Nissan was only smashed in.
The accident occurred in Hallandale Beach, Florida, United States.
Luckily both drivers and car occupants aren’t in critical condition, and in fact, the Tesla owner only had a little blood running out of his nose and a minor leg injury. The occupants of the Nissan were brought to the hospital.
Allegedly, the Nissan ran a red light as it sped right into the Tesla.

However, this crash in which the Tesla cuts into two appears to have given some credence to Tesla’s award-winning safety features. The Model X has earned a reputation as one of the safest Sport Utility Vehicles.
Amongst SUVs, during crashes, it is quite common to see them somersault or roll over when a side impact happens. This occurs because SUVs have a high centre of gravity.
Teslas, however, including the Model X, have a very low-lying centre of gravity, which means they virtually never roll over in high-speed accidents.
Tesla cars are all-electric cars. They are manufactured by Tesla, Inc., an American electric vehicle and clean energy company based in Palo Alto, California.
