On June 10, CSIRO released the results of a crash test evaluation of the domestic Tesla Model 3. The results showed that the safety index of the vehicle members and the vehicle auxiliary safety index received excellent (G) evaluation, the pedestrian safety index obtained a good (A) evaluation, and the index of collision resistance and maintenance economy obtained a general (M) evaluation.
To sum up with a less appropriate term, the domestic version of Model 3 is a “money-seeking but not fatal” car, that is, good safety, but hit the later repair fare money.
However, in all the models tested by Zhongbao Research, “collision resistance and maintenance economy” this one seems to be only SAIC Skoda Kodiak took G (excellent), take A (good) is not much (Gili Xing Yue, Changan Ford Focus, etc.), P (poor) I have seen a lot;
According to the test rules, airbag detonation will make the result directly to P (that is, low-speed collision you give me the air bag, it is a waste of money), you understand.
The image above shows that the Model 3’s crash resistance is good, but the maintenance economy is heavily deducted
But the vast number of Model 3 car friends seem to be very dissatisfied with this result, they think model 3 should take “PGGG”, otherwise sorry for their own “leek” title.
According to the crash test images and videos released by China Insurance Research, Model 3 performed well in the “In-car Occupant Safety Index” item. In the most difficult front bias collision test, although the left front wheel fell off, but did not invade the occupant compartment, the airbag also normally bounced open;
From the detailed results, the domestic Model 3’s “legs and feet” score dragged the hind legs, which has a certain relationship with the car does not have a knee airbag.
Speaking of this frontal 25% bias collision test, you have to whip the body of Passat, as the saying goes, no comparison, no harm, look at The Passat’s test results:
Not only does Tesla give the masses a taste of the electrical and electronic architecture, but it also leads the way in crash safety, is this smart and safe car? Love is love.
On the side, Model 3 is green and performs well. The side air curtain on the side of the impact is fully opened and holds the head of the person in the vehicle, and the B-pillar deforms but does not break.
Model 3 also received a G (excellent) rating in both the headrest/seat and roof strength.
As for the big item of “pedestrian protection”, Model 3 took A (good), which is not much explained because the testing and scoring methods of the project are complex. But if you want to get a high score, the suction bumper, soft materialfront cabin cover are available options;
The Vehicle Assisted Safety Index includes front-touch warning and active braking, both of which are automatic assisted driving configurations, Tesla’s strengths, and are naturally all full marks.
Throughout the crash test, Model 3 did not have electrolyte leakage, fire and so on, and electrical safety was also guaranteed. However, The Institute did not specifically test for electrical safety, C-NCAP is there, in view of the C-NCAP wind assessment is not good, I would like to be able to conduct a set of specific crash testing specifications for electric vehicles.
Model 3 has done well in Tests in E-NCAP in Europe and IIHS in the United States, so many people have speculated that the domestic version is certainly fine, but because of Passat’s pit dad’s front car, many people are beginning to worry about the arrival of the domestic Model 3. But this time Tesla proved itself, although the chip “accidentally” mixed down, but the safety of this piece is still guaranteed.
Now that you’ve talked about the crash tests abroad, it’s better to review the Model 3’s testing in Europe and the United States. E-NCAP (C-NCAP, which can be understood as Europe) gave it the highest five-star rating, and IIHS (which can be understood as the U.S.’s CSIRO) gave it the highest security rating, 2019 TOP SAFETY PICK Plus.
Tesla Model 3 scores at E-NCAP
Tesla Model 3 scores at IIHS
To get IIHS’s TOP SAFETY PICK plus, you must get G in the driver’s side-front small angle collision, front medium area collision, side, roof strength and head restraint test, as well as passenger front small angle collision, headlight test. In addition, the forward collision warning to get advanced or superior ratings, Tesla handed in a near-perfect answer.
As at home, in IIHS’s tests, the model 3’s front leg is still a buckle, and it’s clear that the domestic version has reduced the knee airbag, hoping that teslas can improve on this in the future.
Looking at the results of two collisions alone, the domestic version of Model 3 performed better than the U.S. version in the front 25% bias crash test (the Chinese version of The Research and IIHS test standards are similar), the domestic version of the A-pillar bend angle is small, and the driver’s leg is less invaded. Imported version of the owner want to cry no tears, the original we are the real leeks.
Overall, the domestic version of the Tesla Model 3 in all kinds of crash test performance can be circled, safety is guaranteed, previously worried about the crash test results of the owner of friends and melon people can rest assured. At present, the domestic version has the standard battery-continuity upgrade / long-range version / high-performance version of the three options, the price is 27.115/34.405/4198 million yuan, and also declared a new model equipped with lithium iron phosphate battery, that is, the price is likely to fall further!
From various perspectives, it is a reason to face, worth starting with the electric car, if you are holding money to buy the new energy potential consumers, you may wish to consider the domestic Model 3.
