Tesla Model 3 will have forward collision avoidance as standard equipment

Pretty sure it's already in all newer (Autopilot capable) Model Ss and the upcoming X. Not in the least surprised that Tesla will carry it over into the Model 3 - in fact, I'd be surprised if they didn't even without this article.

I would much rather have automatic emergency breaking than cruise control.
It is amazing how many rear end accidents there are on the highway that cause major traffic delays not to mention the aggravation to those involved.
This cannot come soon enough.

Yes, Automatic Emergency Breaking is listed as standard equipment in the Model S specs. After reading that article, I'd be very surprised if this wasn't included in the Model 3 as standard equipment. This means that the Model 3 will likely have forward looking cameras and radar as standard equipment, as well as Traffic Aware Cruise Control. Sounding better and better all the time...

I know it's reading between the lines quite a bit, but I think it's a pretty safe bet.

Because it would be almost necessary to have this as standard to achieve 5 stars in crash tests in EU, I had been very surprised if there should not be standard also on Model 3
