(Elbil24): Every new passenger car on the European market will be sent at some point during the tough ordeal – the Euro NCAP hard crash and orthopedic tests.
For car manufacturers, participation is voluntary, but it is not at all a good idea not to submit cars for testing.
These tests are the only common European standard in existence, in terms of safety.
The requirements for a top 5 out of 5 star rating are becoming more stringent. Given that the Ford Mustang Mach-E has had to endure some criticism, among other things In the so-called “Mohs test” recentlyThe excitement was great if you could run a full house in the tough Euro NCAP crash tests.
Elbil24, along with an international test team, conducted Mohs tests of the standard Mach-E and compared to the top model Mach-E GT:
Cars are measured according to how safe you are in them, how “kindness” the car is to other road users, if you are supposed to be unlucky and run into something or someone. Cars are also measured by how well they avoid an accident through their active and passive safety systems.
The tests are mainly divided into four parts.
- adults in the car
- kids in the car
- Smooth traffic edges
- protection systems
Cars receive partial scores on each of the four parts, which are finally summed up in a number of stars, with the five stars representing whole homes. However, this does not mean that there is a perfect score on all subtests. The Mustang Mach-E, for example, takes 69 percent of the credit for how it behaves in collisions with soft-road users.
However, that wasn’t enough to deprive them of a top rating – five out of five stars. It is also worth noting that he scored better than Recently tested Ioniq 5, at two out of four test points, equal to one point and slightly less in the latter (auxiliary security features).
