Latest Tesla and BMW Crash Test…..
Just because it’s the “Most Loved Car in the U.S.,” doesn’t mean it’s also the safest. The Insurance Institute of Highway Safety announced that the Tesla Model S failed to earn a Top Safety Pick+ designation.
The IIHS’s Top Safety Pick+ award is given to vehicles that achieve a rating of “good” on all five of its crash evaluations and have an available front crash prevention system that earns an advanced or superior rating. Vehicles that also come with “good” or “acceptable” headlights earn the “plus” award.
The 2017 Tesla Model S earned a good rating on the moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints crash tests, but it was graded only “acceptable” on the small overlap front crash test.
