Model X made history when it became the first and only SUV to ever receive a 5-star safety rating in every category and sub-category from the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Today, we’re excited to build on that legacy with the addition of a 5-star safety rating from the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP), which evaluates a car’s safety assistance features as well as its ability to protect adults, children and vulnerable road users.
It’s here. Software Version 10.0 – our biggest software update ever. We’re raising the bar for what people have come to expect from their cars with new entertainment, gaming, music, and convenience features designed to make your car much more capable, as well as making time spent in your car more fun.
We engineer our cars to be the best in the world – in every category. Model 3, our most affordable car yet, is no exception. From the start, we designed it to be among the safest cars ever built, with the goal of getting as many Model 3s on the road as possible to further our mission.
Starting today, we’re launching Tesla Insurance, a competitively priced insurance offering designed to provide Tesla owners with up to 20% lower rates, and in some cases as much as 30%. Tesla Insurance offers comprehensive coverage and claims management to support our customers in California, and it will expand to additional U.S. states in the future.
Less than two years ago, Tesla built and installed the world’s largest lithium-ion battery in Hornsdale, South Australia, using Tesla Powerpack batteries. Since then, the facility saved nearly $40 million in its first year alone and helped to stabilize and balance the region’s unreliable grid.
Tesla hecht veel waarde aan veiligheid en daarom hebben we Model 3 ontworpen om de veiligste auto te worden. In de V.S. heeft Model 3 al een algemene 5-sterrenbeoordeling van de NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) gekregen, inclusief 5-sterren in elke categorie en subcategorie, en het scoren van de laagste kans op letsel van alle auto's die ooit door het Amerikaanse New Car Assessment Program zijn beoordeeld.
While no car can prevent all accidents, we work every day to make them less likely to occur. The massive amount of real-world data gathered from our cars’ eight cameras, 12 ultrasonic sensors, and forward-facing radar, coupled with billions of miles of inputs from real drivers, helps us better understand the patterns to watch out for in the moments before a crash.
Al meer dan tien jaar zijn de ingenieurs van Tesla geobsedeerd door het maken van de meest efficiënte elektrische auto’s ter wereld. Daarom rijden Tesla’s nu al met één enkele lading verder dan welke andere EV op de markt dan ook. Sinds vandaag zijn Model S en Model X zodanig aangepast dat ze ongekende afstanden kunnen afleggen zonder bij te laden, waardoor we ons eigen record van de EV met het grootste bereik overtreffen. We hebben dit bereikt zonder de accu te vergroten, wat bewijst dat onze expertise in systeemontwerp onze auto's aanzienlijk efficiënter kan maken.
Today, we’re publishing our first ever Impact Report, which measures the impact our products and operations have on the environment and our communities. We believe the faster the world moves towards a zero-emission future, the better, so we’re working hard to minimize our greenhouse gas footprint, while investing in our employees and the communities in which we operate. We look forward to sharing further progress in future reports.
Model 3 has been the best-selling premium car in the U.S. for the past three quarters, and we’ve heard from Model 3 owners around the world that they love their cars. It has the highest consumer satisfaction rating of any car in the world.
