The Tesla Model 3's ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Still, five-star ratings across the board from NHTSA is nothing to sneeze at.

In testing, the Model 3 earned top marks in all three categories. Consumer Reports initially denied the Model 3 its coveted "Recommended" rating due to the vehicle's variance in braking distances, which Tesla promptly addressed through an over-the-air software update.

The Model 3 isn't just great to drive, it's safe as h*ck too, according to NHTSA. Just like the Model 3, the Tesla Model X received ideal scores in all of the NHTSA's frontal crash, side crash, and rollover tests.

However, the Model 3's semi-autonomous Autopilot was ranked highest in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's recent evaluation of active lane-keeping systems. 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.

Finally, the rollover category measures the risk of rollover in a loss-of-control scenario. Model 3 is truly among the elite in this aspect.

A Tesla Model S electric vehicle is seen at a dealership in Seoul, South Korea. The only safety equipment mentioned by NHTSA that the Model 3 doesn't offer is dynamic head restraints. With the motor mounted near the rear axle rather than in the hood, the front end of the vehicle becomes a generous crumple zone to soak up the impact in the event of a head-on collision.
