Tesla is boasting about the fact that the Model X is the first SUV to receive a 5-star safety rating in every NHTSA test, plus the fact that it also has the lowest probability of rollover of any SUV. To prove that its nearly impossible to make the Model X rollover, Tesla has released a video of its failed attempts.

Thanks to its large battery pack that’s mounted low in its chassis, the Model X has an ideal low center of gravity – one of the main reasons that it’s hard to flip the Model X. The NHTSA gave the Model X a rolling resistance of 9.30 percent, but it also couldn’t flip the Model X in its own tests.
