The automotive industry is heavily regulated, ensuring that products are safe. There are strict rules and regulations which guide the safety of the vehicles we drive and by law vehicles have to meet minimum safety standards. These tests need to prove passenger and pedestrian safety in a range of collision situations, and for electric vehicles that includes ensuring the battery and voltage cables are safe. Beyond statutory standards of electric car safety there are NCAP ratings, providing each car with an out of 5 stars performance level against the Euro NCAP crash tests which consider adult protection, child protection, pedestrian protection and safety assist measures. All electric cars carry an NCAP rating so you can compare with confidence using this standardised approach to vehicle safety.
