GS8 ob­tains 5-star safety rat­ings

GAC ve­hi­cle wins high­est score of C-NCAP in medium and large-sized SUV

Kuwait Times - - BUSINESS -

KUWAIT: On July 3, China Au­to­mo­tive Tech­nol­ogy & Re­search Cen­ter (CATRC) held the sec­ond Group, 2017 C-NCAP re­sults an­nounce­ment in Tian­jin. With an ex­cel­lent per­for­mance of 57.7 points, GS8 ob­tained 5star safety rat­ings and out­per­formed its coun­ter­parts, be­com­ing the “safety cham­pion” of medium and large-sized SUVs since adop­tion of new test stan­dards by C-NCAP and set­ting a safety bench­mark of the medium and large-sized SUV.

C-NCAP is the high­est as­sess­ment stan­dard in China’s au­to­mo­bile safety sec­tor. In par­tic­u­lar, CATRC, since adop­tion of C-NCAP Man­age­ment Reg­u­la­tion (edi­tion 2015) and col­li­sion stan­dard, has put for­ward stricter re­quire­ments to the safety of prod­ucts to be tested. In the sec­ond batch of col­li­sion test in 2017, GS8 lived up to ex­pec­ta­tions and ob­tained 5-star safety rat­ings with an out­stand­ing per­for­mance of 57.7 points, which is the high­est score among medium and lar­ge­sized SUVs since im­ple­men­ta­tion of the Man­age­ment Reg­u­la­tions (edi­tion 2015) and ex­ceeds that of coun­ter­parts such as High­lander (55.5 points), EDGE (56.5 points), Changan CS95(54.1 points) and Haval H7 (57.4points). That man­i­fests GAC MO­TOR’s sys­tem strength in in­sis­tence on for­ward de­vel­op­ment and in­ter­na­tional qual­ity stan­dard to man­u­fac­ture ve­hi­cles in an all-round man­ner.

The mo­ment of GS8’s 100% front col­li­sion against a rigid wall

In the test of 100 per­cent front col­li­sion against a rigid wall, GS8 got a high score of 16.37 points: front cabin crum­pled due to en­ergy ab­sorp­tion and airbags popped up nor­mally; col­umn A in­curred no ob­vi­ous de­for­ma­tion; four doors could be opened nor­mally; pas­sen­gers were fully pro­tected. In the strictest 40 per­cent front off­set col­li­sion test, GS8 won a high score of 16.73 points: front anti-col­li­sion steel beams fully trans­mit­ted col­li­sion en­ergy, front cab­ins crum­pled due to en­ergy ab­sorp­tion and airbags popped out nor­mally; Col­umn A in­curred no ob­vi­ous de­for­ma­tion and four doors could be opened nor­mally.

In the side col­li­sion test, GS8 got a full score of 18.00 points: side air cur­tains and airbags popped out cor­rectly; Col­umn B in­curred no ob­vi­ous de­for­ma­tion; side an­ti­col­li­sion steel beams en­sured the safety of pas­sen­gers. GS8 per­formed well in the seat whiplash test, ob­tain­ing 3.57 points. Three items for awarded scores (3 points): re­minder of side seat belts for front pas­sen­gers, side airbags and air cur­tains and ESC de­vice. In the front col­li­sion test: the dummy in the car was fully pro­tected and doors could be opened nor­mally.

High-tech 5-star safety rat­ings pro­vide you with safe travel

GS8 was de­signed ac­cord­ing to the stan­dard higher than 5-star safety rat­ings. And it takes 5 years to de­velop GS8 based on GCPMA. The sec­ond-gen­er­a­tion GAC (geo­met­ric ab­sorp­tion con­trol) tech­nol­ogy tested on mul­ti­ple mod­els is adopted for GS8 with utiliza­tion ra­tio of high-strength steel in pas­sen­ger com­part­ment ex­ceed­ing 95 per­cent and com­pres­sive strength on the roof and max­i­mum pres­sure of re­sis­tance to ex­tru­sion at side doors far higher than reg­u­la­tory re­quire­ments. Mean­while, GS8 is pro­vided with Bosch’s nine-gen­er­a­tion ESP 9.1 and 8 airbags, en­sur­ing driv­ing safety in a com­pre­hen­sive man­ner.

High-strength steel se­cu­rity body of GAC 2.0

By virtue of prod­uct value be­yond users’ ex­pec­ta­tions, GS8, with sup­ply fail­ing to meet de­mands since its launch, has ex­ceeded 10,000 units in sales for two con­sec­u­tive months. Limited by in­suf­fi­cient sup­ply of trans­mis­sions, GS8 achieved to­tal sales of over43,500 units from Jan­uary to May, cre­at­ing the best sales among Chi­nese lux­ury flag­ship SUVs. GS8 ob­tained C-NCAP 5-star safety rat­ings with a high score, reach­ing win-win re­sults in mar­ket and brand with in­creas­ingly ma­ture qual­ity. Mutawa Alkazi Com­pany is the sole agent of all GAC ve­hi­cles in Kuwait in­clud­ing the GS8.
