Taycan, Porsche’s first all-electric car, has just received a 5-star safety rating from the European New Car Rating Program (Euro NCAP), based on its existing credentials from the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Porsche Taycan reached the full five stars in this safety test round, winning an 85% rating for adult occupant protection, 83% rating for child occupant protection, 70% rating for vulnerable road users, like its level of danger to pedestrians, and a 73% rating for safety assist:
“Another eye-catcher of this round is the Taycan, Porsche’s first full electric car that has been dubbed a rival to the Tesla Model S and Jaguar I-PACE in the all-electric sedan segment. While the Taycan is all about high-performance electric driving performance and primarily targets the high-end of the consumer market, it is reassuring that the car achieved the full five stars in safety testing.”
Taycan does exactly what you want, just the way you need it. Whether it’s a quick conversion or a dazzling speed gain for an overtaking on the road. Using launch control, Porsche speaks in 2.8 seconds at zero to 100 km/h for the top-of-the-line version Turbo S and now it’s a five star safety vehicle. Euro NCAP said about the Porsche Taycan passenger compartment safety:
“The passenger compartment of the Taycan remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. Porsche showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sitting in different positions. In the full-width rigid barrier test, protection of all critical body areas was good or adequate for both occupants, with the exception of the rear passenger’s chest, for which dummy readings of compression indicated a marginal level of protection. In the side barrier impact, protection of all critical body areas was good, and the car scored full points in these tests. In the more severe side pole test, protection of the chest was adequate, and that of other body areas was good. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated marginal protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometric assessment of the rear seats also indicated marginal whiplash protection. The standard-fit autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system performed well in tests of its functionality at the low speeds at which many whiplash injuries occur. However, the Taycan was not awarded the points for these tests, as good dynamic performance in the front seats is a prerequisite for AEB scoring.”
