The US government appeared to take a shot at Tesla after the company touted the Model 3’s safety features
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said in a statement on Tuesday that it does not evaluate vehicle safety beyond its star rating system. The statement was an apparent response to claims that Tesla has made about its vehicles.
