The Audi e-tron electric crossover was the first electric car to receive the highest safety rating (2019 Top Safety Pick +) from the American Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, IIHS.
The organization performed a series of crash tests where this electric car showed excellent or good results and in its basic configuration. Below you can see how Audi e-tron passed these tests:
Experts noted the operation of the automatic braking system, which completely avoided a collision with a pedestrian when testing at a speed of 25 km / h and dramatically reduced the speed when testing at a speed of 12 km / h. The report also mentions Audi e-tron LED headlights with the function of automatically switching between high and low beams to increase the safety of meetings with vehicles.
Interestingly, the 2017 Tesla Model S sedan did not reach the IIHS highest price tag. The Tesla Model X crossover was not tested by this organization, but the Tesla Model 3 compact sedan just getting tested right nowbut the moment has already been missed and with a successful result he can only become the second electric car with such a price.
