Tesla is the Choice: Top Safety Pick Designations Come with It


Elon Musk once said, “If you give yourself 30 days to clean your home, it will take 30 days, but if you give yourself 3 hours, it will take you 3 hours. The same applies to your goals, ambitions, and plans.” This genius human being doesn’t just get away with brilliant words without practicing them. Recently, Tesla Model 3 lost its top safety pick designations, which had the potential to impact Tesla’s company value. Of course, everyone was concerned about bringing its top safety pick designations back. Such a procedure may have taken weeks and months for other companies, but for Tesla, with such a genius like Elon Musk, it took a few days. Remember? “Give yourself 3 hours and it will take you 3 hours.”


What Was The Tesla Situation?

Last month reports started being circulated about Tesla Model 3 and Y being the Top Pick. Indeed, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety had different plans and went for the option of removing the Top Safety Pick Plus designation for the vehicles. Such news is horrible; moreover, if we talk about Tesla, such news is unbelievable! Even the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of the U.S. government stopped marking as checked on the vehicles’ website for having automatic emergency braking, warning of forward collision, lane departure warning, and support for the emergency brake. These are important to be qualified for because just being a sustainable vehicle is never enough to persuade people to buy the product and feel safe while driving it.


Few Days And New Reports Are There

Of course, a company like Tesla couldn’t have its top safety pick designations lost. Tesla’s top safety endorsements got regained as quickly as possible in an unexpected yet really wanted way. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety reported that it revisited vehicles and completed novel evaluations on all the essential safety features that they should have. Surprisingly, superior ratings didn’t stop coming from the side of IIHS. To Tesla’s happiness, Top Safety Pick Plus got extended to all Tesla Model 3s and Ys. Reports with recommendations to go for the models didn’t stop coming, and of course, those lured customers. Elon Musk succeeded again and again, and he doesn’t plan to ever stop.

What Did IIHS Change In The Evaluations?

Not that IIHS solely loves Tesla and decided to reevaluate it to make it equipped by standard again, but Tesla really worked towards getting the reevaluation by IIHS. What it did was equip Model 3 and Y vehicles with radar sensors instead of Tesla Vision. The so-called Tesla Vision system is a camera-based one that uses a neural network, which has not been tested prior to going on sale. It’s usual that independent testing is required prior to selling the product. Nevertheless, Tesla corrected its mistakes and prospered. By replacing Tesla Vision with radar sensors, Tesla Model 3 and Y vehicles got reevaluated and matched all the safety standards.


Final Note

2021 can continue being successful for Tesla and Elon Musk. Everyone makes mistakes, so does Tesla. However, not everyone knows how to put the right mindset into work with the right timing. Remember? “Give yourself 3 hours and it will take you 3 hours.”
