There's more than meets the eye when it comes to the Tesla Model X.  Granted that the Model X is easily attractive from the outside, much more appealing is the fact that this is an SUV is much safer than the rest.  The Tesla Model X was the first car to receive a perfect safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Unlike most SUVs, which tend to roll over with ease, the Model X continues to return to an upright position. Rolling over is the biggest shortcoming of SUVs because of their high center of gravity.  Rollovers can result in the partial or full ejection of passengers from the vehicle, increasing the chances of injury or death. 

Over the past three decades, automakers have been able to reduce the frequency of rollovers in vehicles with technology and more stable designs. However, once a serious impact occurs, it's basic physics. A higher center of gravity increases the likelihood of a car tipping or rolling over. 
 
Among its many luxury features, the Model X hosts active safety technology such as collision-avoidance systems and automatic emergency braking.  But what sets the Model X apart is its design. Like other Teslas, the Model X has a large rigid battery pack located on the floor of the vehicle. This gives the Model X a much lower center of gravity than your average SUV. In the event of a collision that would normally cause an SUV to roll over, this would happen instead.



But rollovers are just one aspect of the safety test. Since the Model X is an electric vehicle, there's no need for mechanical components in the hood of the car. This allows for a much larger crumple zone to absorb energy from a frontal crash. It also has specially made side sills that absorb energy in addition to its rigid side pillars. These features help reduce the force exerted on passengers and increase their protection.



The Model X is the safest, fastest and most capable sport utility vehicle with falcon wing doors and electric power system in history. With all-wheel drive and a 100 kWh battery providing 489 miles of range, Model X has ample seating for five adults and all of their gear. And it's ludicrously fast, accelerating from zero to 60 miles per hour in as quick as 5 seconds.
 

As of this writing, if you want to rent a Model X, you will have to pick it up in Switzerland through https://www.europcar.ch .  Seven days with it may set you back by about 60,000 PhP but hey, you only live once.  Picture it now...pick up the car in Switzerland, cross the border into Italy by driving to Lake Como, down to Milan, further south to Bologna, Florence, La Spezia, Genoa, then back to Switzerland.
