Over the past few weeks, the Tesla Model S has been the farthest thing from camera shy.
The New York Times disputed the cars ability to reach anywhere without the assistance of a flatbed truck. Tesla founder Elon Musk disputed the claim, proving to the world that the Model S can in fact make it from DC to Boston without the need share a seat with a burly tow truck driver who reeks of cigarettes.
What with the Model S being an entirely electric vehicle, you can expect that certain safety precautions need to be adhered to in the event of an accident. The last thing you want to do is create a daisy chain of first-responders twitching on the ground from electric shock. In order to prepare safety personnel, Tesla donated a brand new Model S to the Fremont Fire Department here in the United States. And for what purpose you might ask?
To practice tearing the car apart, of course. For the impatient among us, skip to the 27-minute mark to watch the so-called Jaws of Life go to work. Otherwise, enjoy a 37 minute long safety demonstration. At least you will be prepared when spotting a crashed Model S on your way to work.
Check out the video and tell us what you think. Is destroying a car like the Model S in the name of safety a good idea?
