Not sure this list says anything other than you can expect more advanced safety features on a $125K vehicle than on a $25K vehicle. For example, the high trim Cadillac CT6, which is offered at a lower price point than the Model S, offers more safety features than any Model S, but lower trims at lower price points do not. On this list, which doesn't adjust for price, the Model S scores much higher. Then of course there are trucks, which are an entirely different ballgame. So this list is more about what vehicles Tesla doesn't sell than what it does sell.

The one manufacturer which does stand out is Honda. It sells into the middle of the market and yet is right at the top in having safety features standard. Not bad even given how its vehicles strongly skew towards passenger rather than work vehicles. Mazda and Toyota aren't bad either though you'd have to look at the mix of vehicles in order to determine whether that's merely because of what they're selling. MB and BMW are rather disappointing. They don't sell trucks and they don't sell a lot of vehicles that compete with the Corollas and Cruises of the world. You'd expect more from them.

Just my quick thoughts.
