An evaluation by the European New Car Assessment Program found the Tesla Model 3 to be one of the safest vehicles on the road.
Euro NCAP is an independent body that evaluates the safety of vehicles in Europe. The group issued a perfect 5-Star rating in all four safety categories: Adult Occupant Protection, Child Occupant Protection, Vulnerable Road Users, which tests a vehicle’s safety features for cyclists and pedestrians, and Safety Assist, which tests active safety capabilities.
“The Tesla Model 3 achieved one of the highest Safety Assist scores we have seen to date,” said Matthew Avery, director of research at Thatcham Research, which runs the only UK-certified Euro NCAP crash-test center. “Its Collision Avoidance Assist system is first class, with its Autonomous Emergency Braking and Forward Collision Warning systems showing high levels of performance … Tesla has made a virtue of safety in its marketing and it is great to see a car now living up to that promise.”
