Audi e-tron scores five stars at Euro NCAP

Audi e-tron scores five stars at Euro NCAP

Audi e-tron, the first all-electric vehicle built ground-up by the German car manufacturer has scored a full five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP (European New Car Assessment Programme). The Audi e-tron has scored 91 per cent for adult occupant protection and 85 per cent for child occupant protection. Additionally, the e-tron has scored 76 per cent for safety assist and 71 per cent for vulnerable road users. 

During tests, the Audi e-tron was found to offer good protection to the knees of the front two passengers. Additionally, the head restraint offered adequate protection against whiplash injury during a rear collision and the size of the occupants did not affect the results. However, it lost a few points for chest protection during an impact with a pole. The vehicle also offered good pedestrian protection and a reliable security assistance feature. 

The battery system in the e-tron is located between the axles in the form of a flat, broad block beneath the passenger compartment. The center of gravity of the Audi e-tron is thus on a level similar to that of a sedan. The axle load distribution is also perfectly balanced at almost 50:50 ratio. Two electric motors drive the electric SUV powerfully, free of emissions, and almost silently, with a system output of up to 300kW and 664Nm (489.7 lb-ft) of torque. The maximum drive torque is available within fractions of a second and provides enormous pulling power. The Audi e-tron completes the standard sprint in 5.7 seconds. Top speed is an electronically limited to 200 km/h (124 mph).
