Tesla Model 3 earns the 2020 IIHS Top Safety Pick+ Award

Tesla Model 3 earns the 2020 IIHS Top Safety Pick+ Award

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) is an independent, nonprofit scientific and educational organization dedicated to reducing the losses — deaths, injuries and property damage — from motor vehicle crashes.

Sixty-four cars and SUVs qualify for an award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety under new criteria that prioritize the protection of pedestrians in addition to vehicle occupants.

To qualify for a 2020 TOP SAFETY PICK or TOP SAFETY PICK+ award, vehicles must have good ratings in each of the Institute’s six crashworthiness evaluations. They must also have good or acceptable headlights and available front crash prevention that earns advanced or superior ratings in both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations.

With 50% of traffic fatalities occurring at nighttime, when there is far less traffic, the risk for a traffic fatality is far greater at night than in the daytime. This led the IIHS to its most significant change for 2020 testing: Vehicles must have headlights standard across every trim level that rank “Good” or “Acceptable.”

The “plus” is awarded to models that come exclusively with good or acceptable headlights, making it easier for consumers to find properly equipped vehicles. Of the 64 award winners, 23 qualify for TOP SAFETY PICK+.

Tesla Model 3 received the TOP SAFETY PICK + award in the Midsize luxury cars category.

Model 3 received high marks in all categories:

  • Small overlap front: driver-side
  • Small overlap front: passenger-side
  • Moderate overlap front
  • Side
  • Roof strength
  • Head restraints & seats
  • Front crash prevention: vehicle-to-vehicle
  • Front crash prevention: vehicle-to-pedestrian
  • Headlights
  • Child seat anchors

Safety Model 3, like all cars of the company, is a matter of pride. Safety is the most important part of the overall Model 3 design. The metal structure is a combination of aluminum and steel, for maximum strength in every area.

The constant painstaking work of Tesla has amazing results, because the safety of car passengers and other road users is a priority. It is Tesla who cares about this safety and is constantly developing and improving various systems that prevent the occurrence of crash, as such.
