Tesla Model X

Usually when there is news about a Tesla, it’s always bad. Not this time, the Tesla Model X in this video was able to warn the driver within seconds of the imminent crash that would have happened.

At the time of the video, the driver was not using the autonomous mode, instead he was driving normally. What alerted him was the onboard pre-collision warning system which might have applied a bit of brake force initially.

Since the Jeep decided to take the exit at the last second, both the SUV trailing behind it and the Tesla Model X had about 3-4 seconds until they hit a stand still from 47-mph.

If it weren’t for the noise alert, the drivers reaction might have been delayed by a second or two – which would have probably resulted in a collision.

At the end of the day, it all goes down to the driver of the Tesla Model X, had he not been alert and focused on the road – no sort of pre-collision system would have helped.
