    Here is an excerpt from motor trend review:

    "That construction also helps distribute side-impact forces through the entire structure. In the first side pole impact test, the Model X broke the pole. Tesla expects it to be the first SUV to receive five-star safety ratings on every test."

    This was pretty much said in the event last night so no real news there.

    I must have missed the "broke the pole" bit. Wouldn't be a Tesla safety test if they didn't break some of the test gear!
