Tesla Model S Loses Top Ratings Spot due to Lack of Automatic Brakes
  • Tesla Model S loses the number 1 spot

The luxury car lost its ratings due to low standard safety measures.

The latest consumer reports have suggested a decline in the ratings of Tesla vehicles especially in Model S. It was seen that the decline was recorded due to the unavailability of latest safety measures in this model.

Model S lacks features such as automatic emergency braking safety features which are coming as a standard in ultra-safety measures.

The EV maker is saying that they are working on a software update problem which is the reason that they are not able to provide this feature. Earlier on till October 2016, the Model S and Model X both came with this AEB as a standard.

However now they are not able to provide the feature. In a recent statement by Tesla, it was stated that the new update of software is supposed to come later this week. After that the inclusion of AEB might become possible.

The Consumer Reports mentioned the fact that EV makers are making sure that AEB is the standard feature in all the vehicles. While Tesla which is an ultra-luxurious car maker should be offering this system for sure.

The Consumer Ratings have added points to the vehicles who have AEB as their standard feature. This is the clear cut indication of proper safety measures and reduced chances of injuries.

The Tesla Model S lost two points in ratings and now have a score of 85 instead of 87. The earlier high score was based on the availability of AEB. BMW 7 Series and Lexus LS have moved upwards in the ranking making the Model S procure the 3rd Position.

Tesla Model X now has a rating of 56 while its earlier rating was of 58. It has actually moved to almost bottom of luxury car ratings.
