"Tesla Motors's recent five-star sweep in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) safety ratings shed light on an important aspect of electric cars: They're inherently safer than vehicles powered by internal combustion engines."

Charles, that's great, one more reason for opting an electric vehicle. I think apart from that energy star rating also has to be done with EVs.
