      The A pillar is not buckled. The only thing you see bending is just the exterior panels. The structure was deemed very good by IIHS standards. However, IIHS did take off points for the restraint system

      Here the Full Report

      The Tesla Model S was introduced in the 2012 model year. The car is a plug-in battery-electric vehicle with no gasoline or diesel engine to help power the car. The EPA city and highway values listed below are based on a comparison of the energy content of a kWh of electricity vs. a gallon of gasoline.

      Beginning with 2016 models built after September 2016, the side curtain airbags were lengthened to improve occupant protection in small overlap frontal crashes. (Information about when a specific vehicle was manufactured is on the certification label typically affixed to the car on the driver door or adjacent B-pillar.)

      Structure
      The driver space was maintained well, with maximum intrusion of the lower interior of 4 cm at the lower hinge pillar. Upper interior intrusion also measured 4 cm at the hinge pillar and instrument panel.

      Injury measures
      A high head acceleration occurred when the dummy's head hit the steering wheel through the airbag, indicating that head injuries would be possible in a crash of this severity. Measures indicate that injuries to the right lower leg also would be possible.

      Restraints and dummy kinematics
      The dummy’s head contacted the frontal airbag but started to slide off the left side because the seat belt allowed excessive forward excursion of the head and torso. The side curtain airbag deployed and has sufficient forward coverage to protect the head from contact with side structure and outside objects. The side torso airbag also deployed.
