Tesla Model S regains top safety rating after software update - Consumer Reports
Tesla Inc's Model S sedan regained Consumer Reports' top safety rating, the magazine said on Tuesday, after the automaker updated the emergency braking system on the vehicle. Tesla provided an over-the-air update in July to its software on the Model S to include automatic emergency braking (AEB) at highway speeds, Consumer Reports said. In April, the magazine, which provides an annual rating of vehicles sold in the United States, lowered its rating on the Model S, noting that Tesla's last software update for the emergency braking system was not adequate.
