Despite the Model S being the subject of a safety investigation earlier this year, automaker Telsa recently stated that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration confirmed the vehicle's high safety score. This comes after a crackdown by the NHTSA in the wake of three fires caused by breaches of the all-electric Model S' lithium-ion battery pack. The NHTSA also upgraded advertising rules for automakers after Tesla made claims that the Model S was so safe, it broke the NTSA's testing equipment.
