News on June 30: Musk posted a message on IIHS Twitter today in response to the Tesla Model 3 regaining "Consumer Reports" and IIHS safety recommendations, saying that Tesla has received the highest score in the standard.
An IIHS spokesperson said: "After the introduction of the new safety rating, the 2021 IIHS Safety First Choice+ certification is now applicable to all 2021 Tesla Model 3 models, regardless of which pre-collision warning system a given model is equipped with." IIHS plans to complete testing of the 2021 Model Y this summer. Consumer Reports said in a statement that independent testing by IIHS has proved the "effectiveness" of Tesla's camera-based automatic emergency braking and pre-collision warning system, enough to once again include the 2021 Model 3 on the "preferred list" ".
It is understood that on the 28th of last month, Tesla announced that it has decided to remove the radar sensor in the US version of Model 3 and Model Y, which may affect the safety performance of the two models. Subsequently, the US "Consumer Report" and the National Highway Safety Insurance Association removed the US version of Model 3 and Model Y from the recommended car safety list.
Musk also announced on Twitter that Tesla's new version of assisted driving software will be retested within one month and will be subsequently upgraded to all cars equipped with FSD.
