ADAC calls Tesla Model 3 a "major safety risk"

The ADAC tested the operation of six current car models. Since the Model 3 also controls driving and safety-related functions via the central touchscreen, this led to the "longest operating and distraction times by far" in the test - making it the last place with a score of 3.8.

Pure touchscreen systems generally performed poorly in the test: the winner was the Mazda 3 with a controller-based operating system and separate climate control unit.
