Tesla Model Y Low center of gravity, rigid body structure and large crumple zones provide unparalleled protection.

Model Y shares 76% of its parts with the Model 3 — with a similar hybrid aluminum and steel body (a departure from previous Models S and X, which used all-aluminum construction).

Lightweight aluminum is used in areas of the body structure that are less likely to be damaged in case of accidental impact, such as the trunk floor and wheel wells. The likely reason for this is due to repair concerns. Although aluminum has excellent crash performance, when a crash does occurs, the entire aluminum component must be replaced compared to steel components that can be reworked back into shape.

The use of aluminum reduces the overall weight of the vehicle, helping to extend battery range.
