Sept. 10, 2019—A Tesla owner credits the feature of instant acceleration help in avoiding a rear-end crash, reported Electrek.

The owner credits his Model 3 Performance's instant acceleration. If properly harnessed, this power can result in surprisingly quick bursts of acceleration at low speed.

While this is mostly seen as a selling point for fun and performance, it can be argued that it’s also a safety feature in some specific context.

The driver did end up swerving away at the end of the video recorded during the incident.
