Tesla made waves earlier this week by announcing that the Model 3 scoring five stars in all of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s crash test categories, leading to the claim that it has “the lowest probability of injury of all cars the safety agency has ever tested.” The Tesla cars have long had a strong record for safety, but this would take it to a new level. Here’s some of the engineering behind what makes the Tesla Model 3 so safe.

There is no denying the 2018 Tesla Model 3's importance. It is intended to be Tesla’s volume-seller, the car that will hopefully make luxury electric cars more accessible to more people, especially when the long-promised $US35,000 version hits the market. It is the key to Tesla’s future, the source of many of its struggles this year, and an EV—hell, a car, period—truly unlike any other.

Stories on the inner-workings of Elon Musk's mind have been flowing like wine in recent days, thanks to the Tesla CEO's attempt at taking the company private. The latest comes by way of the Wall Street Journal, which sets the scene with a cheery anecdote about the one time Musk (purportedly) head-butted a car to refute that the company's assembly line needed to be stopped for safety.

It's no secret that the Tesla Model S shares a lot of components with other cars, especially when it comes to modules that control various features inside of the cabin. Using parts from cars like the Ford Fusion and the Mercedes E-Class made sense for Tesla's first mainstream sedan outing as a small but growing manufacturer. Yet one of the questions with the Model 3 was whether Tesla would follow the same pattern or use more in-house components.

Ever since the Tesla Model 3 debuted we've been wondering a nagging question. Questions about its production rate, build quality, and worker conditions were all mere breezes rustling past our ears compared to The Big One. The Thing On All Of Our Minds. Can the Tesla Model 3 drift? It turns out that yes, yes it can.

We’re Tesla< shills. We’re Tesla shortsellers. We’re in bed with Tesla. We want to kill Tesla to do a favour for the traditional automakers and big oil. We’ve been accused of tons of things in regards to Elon Musk’s electric car company, and it’s because that company generates a lot of news that’s often a mixed bag.
