Tesla Model 3 And Y Just Lost These Top Safety Endorsements—Here’s Why
The Tesla Model 3 and Model Y recently lost their "
Top Safety Pick+" endorsements from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) due to changes in the IIHS testing criteria.
The specific reason behind the loss of endorsement lies in the vehicles' front crash prevention system, which no longer meets the criteria set by the IIHS for the highest safety rating.
It's important to note that the vehicles still retain the IIHS's standard "Top Safety Pick" designation, indicating strong overall safety performance.
Tesla has continuously made improvements to its vehicles' safety features and may work to address the concerns raised by the IIHS in order to regain the prestigious "
Top Safety Pick+" status. Safety remains a crucial aspect for Tesla and other automakers as they strive to provide the highest level of protection for occupants.
