When Tesla decided to exclude radar sensors from its newer Model 3 and Model Y vehicles in the U.S., it had to downgrade functionality in these cars at least temporarily. As a result, Consumer Reports and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety are suspending some key safety endorsements for those cars.

Consumer Reports said it no longer lists the 2021 Tesla Model 3 as a “top pick” and reported that IIHS also plans to remove the Model 3’s “Top Safety Pick+” designation. Losing these recommendations for now could impact Tesla’s sales and marketing strength. Automakers generally tout such industry accolades in communication with prospective customers.
