The Tesla Model 3 has regained its safety ratings, after temporarily being stripped of high-profile rankings following the automaker’s decision to switch to an all-camera system in May. At the time, Tesla argued that the camera-based replacement to the old advanced driver-assistance system – which had included radar – would be more effective, though organizations like the IIHS wouldn’t take that at face value.
Instead, Tesla saw the Model 3 and Model Y – its two most affordable all-electric cars – lose their coveted IIHS Top Safety Pick+ ratings, and Top Pick recommendation from Consumer Reports.
