So not to Jon Prosser myself here, but I’ll shave my eyebrows if that X isn’t totaled. I bet the frame was impacted too, which makes the rest of the damage inconsequential.

Glad you are safe. MORE validation that Teslas are among the safest cars on the road.
Thanks! I just bought a 2018 with plans to sell it when my new one comes in (March?). After having owned the X for 8 months and experiencing 1st hand how it protected us...I don't want to drive anything else!!

I don't know if we'll have access to the car again. Suffice it to say, it was bad enough that we could not get to the well to get our things out.
Glad everyone was ok.

The third row seating starts after the rear storage well. How far past the well did the intrusion extend?

Any idea how fast they were going when they hit you? We're you stopped?

Here's a photo of the third row seats. You can see that passenger heads are about where the back corner glass triangles are. I measured from the back of the third row seats to the outside back of the hatch is 24".
