The Tesla Model 3 debuted with a perfect five-star score in the frontal offset deformable barrier crash test, a mainstay of Euro NCAP’s assessment since its inception in 1997.
It recorded 96% for adult occupant protection, 86% for child occupant protection and 74% for protecting vulnerable road users outside the car.
Its 94% performance in the Safety Assist tests particularly impressed, thanks to its superb driver assistance systems like lane support, speed assist and autonomous emergency braking.
The Tesla’s 94 percent overall score in 2019 Safety Assist tests is the best yet under Euro NCAP’s most recent protocol.
