Safety Features of top Electric cars in india

Safety features of top electric cars: Safety is the top priority when buying a vehicle, and electric cars are no exception. The New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) rating is the best way to find out how safe a particular car is. Just like conventional vehicles, electric vehicles also undergo the same rigorous safety testing and the same safety standards, apart from EV standards. In the event of a crash, the safety systems in electric vehicles automatically cut off the battery for safety. Additionally, the pyro fuses get activated when the sensors detect a collision. They then cut the high-voltage cables and disconnect all power instantly. 

In comparison to conventional vehicles, they have a lower gravity centre, becoming more stable and the chances of rolling over during accidents are also low. Let’s check out the safety features of top electric cars in India. These vehicles have secured good ratings in the safety tests, ensuring they provide a safe driving experience.

About NCAP safety standard 

The NCAP safety test is a car crash test to find out how well- equipped a car is to ensure the safety of the people inside. The car is crashed head-on into another object and the results tell how safe it would be in the event of a crash. Inside the car, they use special dummies that represent the occupants – two adults in the front and two children in the back seats. The car scores points for the safety features installed to ensure the safety of people during an accident.
