The Model S regained its status as the magazine’s top-rated, ultra-luxury sedan after Tesla updated its software to include automatic emergency braking at highway speeds
And how is that done?
The car got an over-the-air update that set the upper limit of the advanced driver-assistance feature back to 90 miles per hour, like the Model S versions built before October 2016.
Why the ding from Consumer Reports?
The magazine had lowered its Model S safety scores in April for the newer versions of the sedan and the Model X, Tesla’s luxury SUV, because they didn’t have their AEB system enabled as part of a “standard” package.
