LEAF NCAP at Nissan LEAF Gets Five Stars From Euro NCAP

Nissan LEAF becomes the first 100 percent electric vehicle to achieve five-star safety rating from EuroNCAP.

The electric Nissan has already been awarded as Top Safety Pick by IIHs, which is the American equivalent of the NCAP. The LEAF can put this besides the other magnificent awards it’s snatched so far, like European and World Car of the Year.

The hatchback EV scored 89% rating for adult safety, an 83% rating for child protection and an 84% rating for its on-board safety assist systems, which include Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and a speed limiter as standard. It also scored 65% score for pedestrian safety. The car’s 48 lithium-ion battery modules, which are housed in a special compartment beneath the floor, completely withstood all the tests including frontal impact, side impact, side pole impact and whiplash.

As an electric car, the LEAF is brilliant. And we are sure if there was an award for the ugliest car in the world, it could probably won that as well!
