2019 Audi e-tron Is A Very Safe Vehicle According To The IIHS

The IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety), a US organization, has just given the Top Safety Pick + to the 2019 Audi e-tron, the electric SUV becomes the first of its niche to earn this title.

To be eligible for this distinction – the highest awarded by the IIHS – the vehicle must be rated “Good” in all crash tests (frontal overlap, moderate frontal overlap, side impact, roof resistance, and headrest test), in addition to obtaining a Good, Advanced or Superior result for the prevention of a frontal collision. In all these categories, the Audi e-tron got the green light.

Emergency automatic braking is part of the standard equipment of the German SUV, a device that earned it the mention “Superior” during braking tests with detection. The IIHS states that the vehicle reduced its speed by 11 miles per hour (17.7 km/h) when approaching at 12 mph (19.3 km/h), and while at 25 mph (40.2 km/h), the SUV came to a complete standstill.

As for its LED headlights, the fact that they are smart – meaning they detect whether it is possible to turn on the high intensity lights or not – also allowed the first electric vehicle of the four-ring make to get the mention “Good”.

Consumers have the right to question the safety of electric vehicles, technology that is still in its infancy on the market. For now, the Audi e-tron is the only electric utility on the market to be awarded this distinction, but it may soon be joined by other models powered by clean energy.
