    Teslas just premiered the Model Y; will you (or have you) tested it? I'm interested in the fate of the 'panoramic glass roof'.

    We've tested many cars with glass roofs; front, side and roof crush. I don't see any problem, other than possibly a gazillion glass fragments.

    Strange, I have seen two 90's Town Cars that had the roofs deformed seriously but the glass sun roofs remained intact. Another had a tree smash the roof down to the headrests and that sunroof glass survived too. I recall that a few vehicles were victims of their glass roofs shattering because of internal stresses in the glass but haven't seen that lately. I deduce that a properly designed glass roof is pretty tough and not a problem.
