Tesla’s Model 3 is “the safest car in the US,” but...what does that even mean? What goes into determining a car’s level of safety? And how did Tesla use glass to help make it safe? Today on bumper to bumper, we’re taking a look at how vehicles are crash tested, what kind of clever engineering goes into keeping you safe in a crash, and how the Tesla Model 3 blew away the competition.

Well don’t sing to the suite song of Tesla yet. They just got their “safe car” title removed due to the issues of the windows being under too much pressure

So the guy who hit 43 g’s survived because the blood rushed out of him fast enough to not elongate the process of the G pulling force. If it were over the course of a longer time, even at less g’s then it would be the opposite effect. I watched this video of this engineering who hypothetically invented the euthanasia roller coaster. Basically you went on a roller coaster and after it’s super fast miles long, 8 loops. Continually pulling Like 8-10 G’s your dead. But most people would survive the first loop. It was only after the body gets hit constantly does it give up and die. Still though 43G’s!! 😱 what were they thinking! Idiots. It needs to slow down at a rate the pulls less than 7 G’s for a few seconds and then goes back to a constant and then again and again until he’s slowed all the way down. Although I wonder if let’s say you had a really long car, like where the driver sat, hypothetically let’s say was 50yards long in the cockpit. If you slowed the car down in the 2 seconds could you also have a mechanism that shot the driver from the back of the cockpit to the front at an equal force so they experienced no G force? And they canceled each other out?

I understand the science behind longer impacts and “rollovers” being “safer” because they distribute the energy longer. That’s all well and good until you get crushed inside the vehicle that just rolled over.

My dad loves his Tesla so much, but he thinks Musk is a bit odd. And it’s true autopilot works even when it’s not on. We were taking my moms Model X down a small two lane road by my house when a semi came down the road. It was too big for the road and was partially in our lane at times. Our car did not like it and actually braked and moved to the side of the road all on it’s own without autopilot being active. It’s amazing! We loved our Model S so much that when my mom needed a new car we went with the X. Had the S 4 years now and the X 2 years. Both have been really awesome cars, and the S has I think 96k miles on it and is still going strong. Highly recommend. I also remember my dad saying when I was learning to drive “If you have to crash one of the cars I hope it’s the Tesla because you at least be safe.” The other car at the time being a very old Honda Odyssey, which did eventually end up being crashed by my brother. Tesla doesn’t have a scratch on it 😂

i just noticed how drawing out the length of these videos to make them more profitable just results in me watching the video, the video exceeding my attention span within the first 5 minutes, then me learning nothing. it's taken me several years to realize how pointless watching most youtube vids is.

I have changed a roof panel in a model 3 that had a crack, similar to how laminate glass breaks. That glass is bonded to the roof structure directly, so the structure is responsible not the glass

I get the collision avoidance software/hardware...-BUT-....The Outlaw in me wonders what happens when YOU NEED to >>>RAM>>> through a barrier(s) &/or person(s)?!......Might be FUNNY & interesting to watch from the sidelines without the massively frustrating & hoped for end results? Great on the speed angle, but NOT the type of ride one would want to rob a bank/Hebrew "Ice Cream Truck" with!...just in case the aforementioned scenario took place. Need a lab-coat sportin "Scientist" in the crew to disable such a feature/fault!... If ones going THAT far into Kriminality, might as well have a surplus cop cruiser w/ALL the bells & whistles for the 2nd/back-up get-away vehicle?.....It REALLY HELPS looking "Official" while speeding away>>>from such a scene...;)..~Then roll that baby up into an N>S>E>W? bound 18 wheeler & CloseDaDoor on her!

TESLA: There's only a 5 year world supply for lithium batteries (and Tesla is using up too much of that for the few , compared to how little a smartphone uses for everyone). Current electrical infrastructure can't supply the electricity to all homes. Powerlines contribute to forest fires. Lithium batteries are mined by African children. Lithium batteries create toxic disposal wastes. There needs to be a law that prioritizes lithium for smartphones over electric cars because cars have petroleum and hydrogen alternatives. Providing more lithium batteries for EV cars is just opening a can of worms because the electrical grid cannot support every house. Not everyone can or wants to incur the cost of solar panels (which from my friend's experience only lasted 7-10 years) I have 4 cars, 2 cars (kids' cars) are parked outside. A battery manufacturer should sell to the highest payer. Ford, GM, and VW have deep pockets and they can pay more for the batteries and put Tesla out of business. An electric truck makes no sense because tests have shown that the battery drains faster when it has to pull. Hydrogen vehicles make more sense in trucks than EV. Hydrogen vehicles fuel up in 5 minutes like gas cars and they have a 1000mpg range; EV you have to wait 45+ minutes (and you have to wait for the guy in front of you to finish his charging) THere isn't a plugin at every corner like a a gas station and the charge is 50 minutes+ (assuming you aren't waiting for the guy before you to finish his charging) Gas stations pay tax to maintain roads, EVs don't That would cause a lot of unemployment.

Title: How Tesla Used GLASS to Build the World’s Safest car First sentence: Tesla's Model 3 war recently named the safest car in the U.S. Conclusion: World = US...... Also if you compare the Volvo S60 with the Model 3 in the IIHS site you'll see, that the only point where the Tesla scores higher than the Volvo are the headlights and the Strength-to-weight ratio (if you calculate the ratio with the same structure but the Volvo's weight you'll get 5.27) No doubt, the Tesla is more roll-over proof... But I doubt that Tesla Model 3 is the safest car in the World...

I respect Tesla and I just wish they’d make motorcycles because I don’t intend to own a car ever again. One nitpick: what is so new about laminated glass? I believe it’s been used in windscreens for quite a long time. And many other safety applications too. Please educate me.
