    The E-Tron was just recently released and just became a Top Safety Pick+ award winner. In light of the Model X being on the market for longer and being sold in more volume why has it not been tested? Perhaps Tesla feels that it won't do well on the test seeing as the Model S tested poorly for headlights and the small overlap test? Tesla likes to advertise their vehicles as being the safest on the road so this would be worth getting validated.

    The IIHS is not as valid as the NHTSA. The IIHS is a "U.S. nonprofit organization funded by auto insurance companies." In other words, it's big auto.

    Meanwhile, "The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is an agency of the Executive Branch of the U.S. government, part of the Department of Transportation."

    I'd rather trust what the Federal Government tests rather than insurance companies. IIHS, in my eyes, is the Consumer Reports of crash testing.

    Perhaps Tesla feels... ?? How do you make that leap?
