Crash Testing A Tesla Model S Is Heartbreaking Safety Porn

Video: I love watching crash test videos. It's a guilty pleasure. Watching cars prove their safety chops in a lab setting is excellent. Despite the fact that Tesla can't make enough Model S sedans to keep up with demand, they sent one to the lab to be destroyed just to make sure if anyone does crash one that they'd be ok.

The Euro ANCAP test certified the Model S with a five-star safety rating, and that's no surprise when you watch the footage. As soon as the Tesla hits something a giant cushion of airbags deploys around the car, protecting both driver and passenger.

The car is also pretty safe for pedestrians too, if you're ever unfortunate enough to hit one.

It is slightly heartbreaking to see such a beautiful car torn to pieces, however.
