Tesla China Shares Video On How Safety Comes First At Tesla
Tesla China shared a new video on its YouTube channel that highlights the important focus on safety that Tesla is well known for. The video led with a clip of CEO Elon Musk speaking on
“Safety has always been Tesla’s top priority in design. And crash test is an important approach to obtain the safety parameters of a car. After countless research and development efforts, a new car faces its final assessment — the crash test. Tesla has received a five-star rating, the highest rating in the industry around the globe from various New Car Assessment Programs (NCAP) and tests from insurance institutes such as Insurance Institutes Highway Safety (IIHS).”

Elon Musk says Tesla is raising the price of its ‘full self driving’ software to $12kElon Musk says Tesla is raising the price of its 'full self driving' software to $12k Idk about y'all, but feels totally worth it to me People still think that's coming out? Lmao How much has the grifter made from the fraud self driving?
Elon Musk Says Tesla Will Raise Price of “Full Self-Driving” Driver Assistance to $12,000In a series of posts on Twitter, where he has 69.2 million followers, Musk wrote, “Tesla FSD price rising to $12k on Jan 17. Just in the US.”
how important it is to put safety first.Model S Plaid aimed at improving performance in areas beyond straight-line acceleration.the Cybertruck will enter production.CNBC has shared the story of Siraj Raval, an owner of a Tesla Model 3 who has tried various ways of mining cryptocurrencies.
“We really believe at Tesla that safety has to come first. We care about you. A Model S Plaid achieved that goal in 2021 with a 7:35. we want you to be safe. It seems that getting the big boxy Tesla to production has gone exactly that smoothly. We want your friends and family to be safe. The Plaid already boasts 1,020 hp and a claimed 0-60 mph time of less than 2. This is paramount. Raval wasn’t the only cryptocurrency miner the article mentioned.
” The video, which was presented in Chinese with English subtitles, was titled, “Tesla Giga Principle of Safety Part 1. When track mode is engaged, the car drops the temperature of its battery pack and motors, creating a chilled thermal mass that helps keep everything cool longer after aggressive driving commences. That reservation is the same for all trims the Cybertruck is supposed to ship with.” It shared clips of crash testing while elaborating on how safety is Tesla’s top priority. Translated, the presenter said: “Safety has always been Tesla’s top priority in design. In this case, the torque split of the tri-motor powertrain's two rear motors is adjusted, sending more power to one motor to help rotate the car through corners. And crash test is an important approach to obtain the safety parameters of a car.

Ford shut theirs down once they felt like they were going to have trouble delivering the F-150 Lightning in a timely fashion. After countless research and development efforts, a new car faces its final assessment — the crash test. The adaptive suspension gets track-specific tuning that reduces pitch during hard braking and acceleration, and rebalanced damping to keep the car more settled, Tesla said.” Another cryptocurrency miner, Chris Allessi, or , the first electric car dealer in Wisconsin, decided to do a bit of tinkering with his Tesla in 2018.

Regenerative braking power was also increased to reduce heat generated by the friction brakes. The only change to the site (apart from the pricing) is the complete removal of any date or timeline for production. Image courtesy of Tesla. Image courtesy of Tesla. Tesla Model S Plaid Track Mode Tesla also said Track Mode gives drivers more control over electronic nannies. The narrator also explained that the vehicle has to go through all types of tests to fully assess just how safe it is. The site had been updated from that old script to say “production in 2022” but now that’s gone too and the only thing showing on the site is “You will be able to complete your configuration as production nears”.” He’s also tried mining for bitcoin with his Tesla.
These tests include simulations of various types of collisions and assessing the damages to the test dummies along with the amount of absorption and deformation of the car’s structure and the performance of its restraint system. Drivers can also individually adjust the stability control and regenerative braking to their liking. In the video, Tesla provides a look at just how Tesla protects its drivers and occupants in different crash scenarios. “In a collision, the strong and flexible structure and materials can effectively ensure the safety of the user. Track Mode should be a nice complement to the Plaid's brutal acceleration. It would be great to hear that the first 100 or so Cybertrucks were finished and heading to customers soon. ‘Being strong’ means withstanding huge impacts, and being ‘flexible’ means to divert and dissipate the impact force.” The narrator shared details of how Tesla makes its structure. Dirty vs.
Tesla uses a mix of steel and aluminum. He explained that the ratio of ultra-strength and high-strength steel used is over 60% of the car and that it can minimize the deformation of the car in a collision. In addition to that, Tesla has a specially designed crumple zone that can maximize the absorption of a large force from the impact that is exerted during a collision, which ensures the safety of its passengers.

He pointed out that among frontal impact testing, small overlap collisions require the highest safety standards and pose the harshest test to the structural design and materials. This is inaccurate.
One of the key advantages of Tesla vehicles is that they do not have engines. This allows for the crumple zone in the front of the car cabin to absorb more force while holding more crumple structures simultaneously. Another engineer pointed out further details while using the frontal cabin structure of a body-in-white. He pointed at a box and noted that it was a long crash box. As the camera zoomed on the box itself, he explained: “The whole aluminum crash box has a fortified square shape cross-section.
During a collision, this piece of the crash box will transform into a wave-like structure.” The narrator added that the energy that isn’t completely absorbed by the crash box will be transmitted and dispersed to the other parts of the car. “The first route is through the beam at the top and to the A-pillar and then the other is from our longeron to the base and outward to the door frame area. There is a triangular support structure in the frontal area. This triangular support structure can effectively prevent the pedals from collapsing into the legroom in a collision.
” Image courtesy of Tesla. Another engineer shared information about the red components at the frontal longeron and how they were designed. They are made from super-high-strength thermal forming steel. “In a frontal collision, our frontal cabin can withstand the thermal impact as much as possible.” Image courtesy of Tesla.
For side-impact testing, these include scenarios where the car collides with a pole from the side, which, the narrator pointed out, is one of the hardest tests to pass. “It requires the side structure of the car to absorb and disperse the energy of the collision to the utmost.” The engineers at Tesla China shared more in-depth details as to how they design the vehicles to be as safe as possible. One key component in the safety design includes intentionally designing it so that the doors can be opened after a collision. They also share how they design the vehicle to protect the battery pack underneath the floorboard, and dive into a special technique called laser penetration welding to secure 1700 MPa grade martensite steel.
