The new Tesla Model 3 scores one of the highest ANCAP safety ratings
The new Tesla Model 3, which will soon be seen on Australian roads, has achieved some of the highest ANCAP ratings in active and passive safety.
The latest and more affordable Tesla electric car scored a five-star ANCAP safety rating making it one of the safest cars on the road.
In the area of adult occupant protection, the Tesla Model 3 achieved a score of 96 per cent after scoring full marks in three of the four destructive crash tests.
Full points were also awarded for the front passenger in the frontal offset test which simulates a head-on crash.
The vehicle also scored maximum points for child occupants in the side impact test.
The Tesla Model 3 also achieved the highest Safety Assist against current protocols with a score of 94 per cent.
Onboard the Model 3 are a range of driver assistance systems including Advanced Lane Support which can actively help the driver avoid steering into the path of an oncoming or adjacent vehicle.

“This is an impressive result, and great to see electric vehicles continuing to prioritise safety” said ANCAP Chief Executive Officer, Mr James Goodwin.
“It is encouraging to see Tesla give equal attention to the active safety systems and technologies on board as well as the safety fundamentals through the structure and restraints,” Mr Goodwin said.
