Tesla Model 3 earns five-star NHTSA crash rating
A video of a Tesla Model 3 crashing is rarely cause for celebration. But today it is, because the videos are of recent National Highway Traffic Safety Administration New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) safety tests, which the littlest Tesla just aced. Whether it was front impact, side impact, or rollover testing, the Model 3 performed to a tee, earning the full five stars on each test.
We probably should not act particularly shocked: both Tesla Model S and Model X also scored top marks in NCAP testing. What’s more, the very layout of battery EVs affords them inherent advantages.
