Tesla received a combined rating of 5.4 stars
Tesla Motors recently received the highest safety rating ever from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
NHTSA gave Tesla's Model S a five-star safety rating in each individual category and overall, achieving a combined rating of 5.4 stars. This is the highest rating ever given by the U.S. agency.
This is a big deal, considering NHTSA only gives about 1 percent of cars tested a five-star rating in every category.
It grabbed such a high rating for a few different reasons. For starters, the Model S doesn't have a large engine block, which means there's a longer crumple zone to "absorb" a high-speed crash. The motor is only about a foot in diameter and is near the rear axle while the front has a second trunk.
For the rear crash test, Tesla made sure to protect occupants in the third row of the vehicle with a doublebumper that can take a highway speed impact. For those who are worried about battery fires, the Model S' battery was fine before, during and after testing
