Tesla Reports Record Deliveries And Production in Q2

Mercedes-Benz B Class crash test

"The Tesla Model 3 achieved one of the highest Safety Assist scores we have seen to date", Matthew Avery, Director of Research at Thatcham Research, said of the results. "Its Collision Avoidance Assist system is first class, with its Autonomous Emergency Braking and Forward Collision Warning systems showing high levels of performance ..."

Its host of safety systems helped it return a score of 94 per cent in the safety assistance category, too.

Handily, the Tesla Model 3 earned a five-star rating for overall crashworthiness throughout all of Euro NCAP's testing.

Tesla saw a record quarter for deliveries, the company said early July, alleviating the worst fears about demand for the Elon Musk-led company's electric vehicles. Sales of the more profitable Model S and Model X increased as well from 12,100 to 17,650. Overseas demand contributed to deliveries of the sedan jumping to 77,550 units, more than all the vehicles Tesla handed over in the first quarter.

It also uses ultrasonic sensors to detect objects, and a forward-facing radar that helps the auto to assess data in conditions with poor visibility such as heavy rain, dust and fog. The same design elements are passed on from the Model S to the Model 3.

Tesla was mostly struggling in ramping up the production of its long-promised mass-market electric vehicle, the Tesla Model 3.

NASA tests abort system on capsule
But the ability to get astronauts away in case anything were to happen to the rocket below them is a key concern for NASA . During AA-2, the booster will send the LAS and Orion to an altitude of 31,000 feet at Mach 1.15 (more than 1,000 mph).

Beyond that, is it perhaps possible that Tesla will one day leverage its EV expertise to develop an airplane?

This data gives us a more precise understanding of the environment around our cars and the different ways that accidents happen, allowing us to more accurately predict when an accident is likely to occur and deploy automated technology to mitigate or avoid it. However, the fact that Musk promoted it on Twitter recently points to the fact that the company is now actively looking to leverage this service to further boost its delivery numbers.

Already, Ford and Jaguar have invested billions developing electric auto models.

As for Tesla (TSLA), I have mixed feelings due to the fact that we're in a period of uncertainty for the next month until the company reports second quarter earnings on or about August 7.

It puts the Model 3 in ninth place in Euro NCAP's 2019 ratings for driver protection, fourteenth place for child protection, eleventh place for pedestrian protection, and first place for safety systems.
