Euro NCAP is the organization that tests the safety of new vehicles sold in Europe. Based on crash tests, it rates vehicles on a scale of zero to five stars. The Tesla Model 3 got a perfect score of 5 stars. The video below shows the crash tests on the Model 3, as well as tests of its active safety features, such as the automatic emergency braking system (AEB) that prevents drivers from hitting pedestrians or cyclists. Euro NCAP says it was impressed by the effectiveness of these features, especially the one that prevents drivers from unintentionally drifting into another lane.
