Crash tests go elec­tric

Yorkshire Post - Motoring - - NEWS -

MIT­SUBISHI’S MiEV is the first elec­tric plug-in ve­hi­cle to un­dergo the Euro Ncap crash tests. It got four out of a pos­si­ble five stars. The car’s cred­itable rat­ing shows that safety does not need to be com­pro­mised in zero-emis­sions ve­hi­cles, says the test­ing or­gan­i­sa­tion. The rat­ing is also shared by the near-iden­ti­cal Citroen C-Zero and Peu­geot iOn. Euro NCAP tests plug-in ve­hi­cles with live bat­ter­ies, with at­ten­tion to elec­tri­cal safety af­ter a col­li­sion.
