Three large cars receive 'Top Safety Pick' award

Three large cars receive 'Top Safety Pick' award

The institute said those sedans were the only models out of six large cars that it tested recently to earn the top safety award.

Ford's Lincoln Continental, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Toyota Motor Corp.'s Avalon received the highest rating overall, the agency said.

The IIHS cited issues with the small overlap front test, which is meant to simulate crashes into trees, poles and other vehicles, as why the Model S did not receive the highest rating. Volvo Cars said Wednesday that all of its cars will feature an electric engine from 2019, signalling its commitment to embrace the new technology, while nearly all of the world's major automakers have some form of electric model in the pipeline. Both the E-Class and Continental were newly designed models for 2017.

American Midstream Partners, LP (AMID) Cut to "Sell" at ValuEngine
Brookfield Asset Management Inc. boosted its position in Enable Midstream Partners, by 9,694.7% in the fourth quarter. It has outperformed by 35.54% the S&P500.The move comes after 6 months negative chart setup for the $409.58M company.

General Motors Co. declined to comment, while Ford and Mercedes were not immediately available for comment.

Tesla received a mediocre or "acceptable" grade, which kept it from receiving the top award.

"While IIHS and dozens of other private industry groups around the world have methods and motivations that suit their own subjective purposes, the most objective and accurate independent testing of vehicle safety is now done by the USA government, which found Model S and Model X to be the two cars with the lowest probability of injury of any cars that it has ever tested, making them the safest cars in history". "However, when IIHS tested the modified Model S, the same problem occurred, and the rating didn't change".

EPA proposes cutting biofuels mandate for 2018
The American Petroleum Institute applauded the announcement but said it didn't go far enough toward overhauling the RFS program. The Renewable Fuels Association , the ethanol industry's leading trade group, said the overall proposal is a positive step.

"Although the two tested vehicles had identical structure, the second test resulted in greater intrusion into the driver's space because the left front wheel movement wasn't consistent". "Acceptable" is one notch below "Good", the best rating possible by the IIHS.

So, why the difference between the two crash tests? "But, the fact we got the same result the second time doing the test was disappointing". The deformation was limited to an area that didn't contain battery cells in the tested vehicle, so this damage didn't affect the rating.

"We're not saying the Model S is unsafe", Zuby said. Automakers strive for top ratings in IIHS tests as they do on federal crash tests.

IIHS tests also concluded that the Tesla Model S headlights earned a poor rating because they have yet to be rated for front crash prevention. Its next hurdle is the launch of its mid-market Model 3, which carries a price below $40,000. While automatic braking comes standard, the software for the feature was only recently activated. The lingering anxiety is whether Tesla can build enough of the vehicle to match demand.
