The agency started the five-star safety-ratings program in 1993, and Tesla's Model X and Model S, which has been the subject of at least one NHTSA investigation, have both received top rating in the past.

To get side crash-test ratings, the NHTSA makes two evaluations. In the case of the 2018 Model 3, you'll find one of the best scores for rollover resistance (6.6%) of any vehicle on sale in the U.S.

In testing, the Model 3 earned top marks in all three categories. In the case of the Model 3, the analyst pointed out that the vehicle would likely be unrivaled until 2020, when Volvo releases its all-electric Polestar 2 sedan.

However, the Model 3 is a less expensive vehicle which some may expect would have resulted in perhaps a lesser rating. Model 3 is truly among the elite in this aspect. Tesla has worked hard to get Model 3 production underway after facing significant setbacks.

Back in May, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), a nonprofit funded by auto insurers dedicated to reducing the number of accidents on the road, also gave the Model 3 a "Superior" front crash avoidance rating. As a result, the Model 3 landed its Consumer Reports recommendation. Tesla's use of ultra-high-strength steel and aluminum for the Model 3's body structure, as well as the vehicle's floor-mounted battery pack, provide further structural rigidity to the electric sedan.
