Teslas have a special safety mechanism to shut down the high voltage system

Arrested: Here's what the owner of a Tesla Model 3 has been up to

Tesla, Rivian, and BMW are some of the automakers that offer two different locations for shutting down the high voltage system in their electric vehicles. In the Tesla Model 3 (as well as in the Model Y, S and X) the simplest location is under the front hood, which can be accessed without damaging any part of the vehicle. The red cable under the hood is identical and has an identical orange label that easily distinguishes it from other cables.



However, while the under-hood point for high voltage extrication in electric vehicles is a fairly standard practice, having a second point is handy in the event of a serious crash, when the strain can make the cable not easily accessible. As reported by Next Level Extrication, in Rivian models the cables are also located under the interior trim in the passenger-side C-pillar, while BMW EVs have them in the charging port.
