Impressive Euro NCAP crash test results




I've watched lots of these tests, and I'm used to seeing deformation in the body shown by doors going out of alignment. There's little to none in the Model 3. Pretty neat.


The testing body gave it 5/5 stars overall, including 100% for the frontal offset, plus 97% for active safety systems - the best car it's seen in that category so far:

The Tesla Model 3 made a strong debut with a perfect score in the frontal offset deformable barrier crash test, a mainstay of Euro NCAPís assessment since its inception in 1997. Its 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 Teslaís 94 percent score in 2019 Safety Assist tests is the best yet under Euro NCAPís most recent protocol.
