Safest Auto Brand
Tesla already one of, if not the safest car brand in the world. The brand has a record of zero deaths or serious, permanent injuries since their vehicles went into production six years ago. In one accident the car ran into a concrete wall going 110 miles per hour and the driver walked away.

In the picture above the driver walked away with no injures and before the actual fire started. The additional triple underbody shield, simply adds an even higher level of protection. This higher level of safety would likely prevent a fire even in extreme accidents.

Here is the additional armour in action
 Steel Alternator - NO Match

 Trailer Hitch - NO Match

Concrete Block - NO Match

Issue:
  • In extreme accidents the underbody of the car may be pierced and the battery damaged, resulting in a fire.

Compensation:
  • All Model S manufactured on or after March 6th, 2014 have  the additional armour.
  • Models manufactured before March 6th, 2014 can receive the upgrade at no cost during scheduled maintenance. Simply contact Tesla
