Tesla's Model 3 gets top safety rating from IIHS

Tesla Inc. announced that its Model 3 received the top safety pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS), becoming the electric carmaker's first model to get the IIHS' highest rating.

The company noted the Model 3 earned top marks in all eight tests, which included those for crashworthiness, occupant protection, crash avoidance, and headlight systems. Tesla particularly stressed the model's superior rating in front crash prevention, which tested its Automatic Emergency Braking system.

"The safety of our customers is what matters most, which is why our active safety features and passive safety equipment come standard on all of our cars. We’re also committed to making our cars even safer over time via over-the-air updates," Tesla said.
