Europe's Auto Safety Panel Says Tesla's Model 3 Set A New Benchmark In Safety

Tesla Inc’s (NASDAQ: TSLA) Model 3 has achieved a 96% in the Adult Occupant Protection category of the Euro NCAP testing, according to Auto Express.

The Adult Occupant Protection category tests crash safety for both driver and passenger.

The process involved a test crash where the vehicle collides with both deformable and rigid barriers, in addition to a side crash test with a pole and a test specifically designed to mimic whiplash. According to Auto Express, the testers praised the Model 3’s “first-class” collision avoidance capabilities.

Tesla shares were trading up 7.11% at $240.52 in Wednesday’s pre-market session following record deliveries.
