Tesla Model S fall short in crash test yet again

Tesla Model S fall short in crash test yet againIn another setback for the high-flying electric carmaker, Tesla’s Model S once again fell short of the top rating in a key crash test, an independent testing agency said Thursday. On the eve of seeing its first mass-market Model 3 roll off the assembly line, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety said that despite changes made to the vehicles produced after January, the Model S was again only able to attain an acceptable rating in the small-overlap test conducted in February. As a result, Tesla failed to achieve the IIHS Top Safety Pick rating, which requires a “good” rating in all five of its crash test scenarios.
