On Wednesday, the 4th of December 2019, the Cupertino, CA-based multinational electric vehicle manufacturer, Tesla Inc. of billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk had issued a public statement saying that the European New Car Assessment Programme (NCAP), a Brussel-based European car-safety performance assessment programme, had awarded the carmaker a five-star rating, suggesting that the Tesla Model X fulfils all obligatory requirement to move around over the European streets.
Aside from that, the Cupertino-based e-vehicle maker had also added in its Wednesday’s (December 4th) statement that it won the same scoresheet for its Model 3 electric vehicles. Meanwhile, adding that the two models of the US-based electric vehicle manufacturer had been the best performers according NCAP’s recent legislations, NCAP said in a statement earlier this week, “This makes the two (Tesla models) the best performers in this part of the assessment against Euro NCAP's most recent protocols.
” In point of fact, the NCAP rating was designed to proffer critical intel on rollover safety alongside crash protections of new vehicles, while Tesla Inc.’s latest five-star rating would likely to ratchet up heats in a highly clogged European automotive industry, suggested automakers.
Besides, following reveal of its Wednesday’s (December 4th) statement, NYSE-listed Tesla Inc. shares’ prices were marginally higher in pre-market trading, but failed to gather momentum in afternoon trading and winded down the day 0.94 per cent lower to $333.03 per share.
