Tesla Inc. announced on Wednesday that its Model X received the top safety rating from the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP), becoming the first and only SUV model to get Euro NCAP’s highest rating.

The company noted that Model X had previously earned top marks in every category and sub-category from the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and that it was "excited to build on that legacy with the addition of a 5-star safety rating from Euro NCAP." The tests evaluate a car’s safety assistance features and its ability to protect all passengers, including children.

Tesla stressed that Model X achieved a near-perfect score in the Adult Occupant Protection category, 8 out of 8 points on the Frontal Offset Deformable Barrier test, and 16 out of 16 possible points on the Side Impact tests proving that "our large SUV is just as safe as our smallest and most affordable sedan."
