The driver of a Tesla Model S has walked away unharmed after his ride has been seriously damaged by a Hyundai Elantra, which blew a red light.
The Tesla Model S proves once again that it’s one of the safest cars money can buy these days after protecting its driver from some serious injuries. The electric sedan has been hit by a Hyundai Elantra driver, who blew a red light while talking on her phone. The woman was taken to the hospital in an ambulance while the Tesla Model S driver walked away from the scene unscratched. The incident took place in Long Island.
Being in production since 2012, the Tesla Model S is currently assembled in Fremont, California and the vehicle is also available for order in some parts of Europe. The full-sized electric four-door sedan is coming with a choice of two batteries, a 60 kWh and an 85 kWh, with the highest range standing at 500 km (310 miles). The electric motor is producing a total output of 416 HP (310 kW) and it has a peak torque of 600 Nm (443 lb-ft), enough for a 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) sprint made in 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 130 mph (210 km/h).
