A Tesla Model 3 owner is thanking his electric car’s emergency braking
system after a recent close call on a dangerous, icy highway. A video of the
nail-biting incident showed the electric sedan seemingly detecting and
anticipating a road hazard well ahead of time, allowing its driver to
successfully perform a “threading the needle” maneuver, avoiding a
potentially deadly crash in the process.

The short dashcam video showed the Tesla Model 3 navigating an icy highway
smoothly, before it braked and moved to the right just as a stopped
hatchback came into view. The Model 3 did not lose any traction when it
performed the maneuver, unlike a white sedan that almost spun out when it
evaded the vehicle.

In a post on the r/TeslaModel3 subreddit [;data=02%7C01%7C%7C6aa661986cb74944d1b408d68c15152f%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636850419506064057&amp;sdata=kB3PZhckB69Z4s%2FNssp6BE4H%2FSqA2Nt1tZUQlpPzfwM%3D&amp;reserved=0

] noted that he felt his electric sedan start braking even before he saw the
stopped car on the road. Sharing his insights further, the Tesla enthusiast
noted that when he swerved to the right to avoid the other vehicle, he could
feel the Model 3 keeping itself in a straight line. This allowed the
electric car to avoid losing traction, similar to what happened to the white
sedan in front, which almost spun out when it tried to evade the stopped

Due to the circumstances of the incident, the Model 3 owner admitted that he
was not really sure if Autopilot was engaged when his car’s emergency
braking system [;data=02%7C01%7C%7C6aa661986cb74944d1b408d68c15152f%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636850419506064057&amp;sdata=ozIRuJjJyCHYv8m0jlX0sytUJopLD5rpyILe5Z49FaU%3D&amp;reserved=0
] kicked into gear. Explaining further, the Tesla enthusiast explained that
the trip had been a six-hour drive, and that there have been times when
Autopilot disengaged due to the weather. That said, the Tesla community
member lightly stated that after he successfully threaded the needle, he
immediately felt relief.

Tesla’s vehicles are among the safest cars on the road today, and this has
been evident in the accolades the Model 3 has received since its release.
Last year alone, the Model 3 received a “superior” front crash avoidance
rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), a nonprofit
organization funded by auto insurers dedicated to reducing the number of
accidents and injuries on the road. During the IIHS’ evaluation, the Model 3
showed impeccable automatic braking capabilities, reducing its speed by more
than 10 mph during the organization’s 12 mph test, and exhibiting a speed
reduction of over 22 mph in the 25 mph test.

Just like its two larger siblings, the Model 3 boasts an incredibly high
safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
(NHTSA). Last August, the safety organization gave the electric sedan a
perfect 5-Star safety rating in all categories and subcategories. In its
frontal crash, side crash, and rollover tests, the Model 3 performed
superbly, displaying a level of industry-leading driver and passenger
safety. Analyzing the Model 3’s NHTSA results, Tesla has noted that the
electric sedan is the vehicle with the lowest probability of injury among
all cars that the agency has tested so far.
