Tesla’s Model Y gets five star rating from Euro NCAP

The electric crossover SUV earned top marks during safety tests conducted by the European New Car Assessment Programme.

Tesla has extended its five-star rating streak in Europe with the Model Y. The electric crossover SUV earned top marks during safety examinations conducted by the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP), receiving the highest overall score among any vehicle tested under the more stringent test protocol of the company. 

The testing measures four areas: its ability to protect children, its ability to protect adults, the protection it provides vulnerable road users like pedestrians and cyclists, and its safety assistance features. 

The Model Y, manufactured at Tesla’s new gigafactory in Berlin, scored a 97% in Adult Occupant Protection and a 98% in Safety Assist. It scored total points for its lane support and new cabin camera-based driver monitoring system.

The agency also commended Tesla for its camera-only vision system, which it said performs remarkably well in preventing collisions with other cars, pedestrians, and cyclists. 

The location of the battery on the vehicle’s floor also gives the Model Y and other Tesla vehicles a lower center of gravity, which improves road stability and decreases the chances of a rollover. Tesla’s other three vehicles, the Model 3, Model S, and Model X, have also earned five-star ratings from Euro NCAP. All four of Tesla’s vehicles have earned five-star ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the most recent going to the Model Y in 2021. 
NHTSA grades cars on various crash test metrics, including side crashes (for crashes into both a barrier and a pole), frontal crashes (with subcategories for both the driver and passenger seats), and rollover scenarios, but not pedestrian and cyclist safety and driver-assist technology.
