The Tesla Model 3 has been awarded a Top Safety Pick+ award by the US Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
It comes just a month after the IIHS bestowed the Audi e-tron with the same award, making it the first EV to receive the coveted nod. This year, the Hyundai Nexo also earned a Top Safety Pick+ award, the first hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle to do so.
The Jaguar I-Pace has yet to be assessed by the IIHS, though it received five stars in Euro NCAP testing.
Earlier Euro NCAP testing yielded scores for the Model 3 surpassing the I-Pace and e-tron. For example, in adult occupant safety, the Model 3 scored 96% against the Jaguar and Audi’s 91%.
The Model 3 performed better in IIHS testing than the Model S when it was last assessed in 2017. The larger Tesla didn’t meet the threshold for either the Top Safety Pick+ or Top Safety Pick awards.
