NHTSA Gives Five Stars to the Volkswagen ID.4

The Volkswagen ID.4 is one of the safest electric SUVs around

  • The ID.4 received the US government’s highest safety rating

  • It also earned the IIHS’ Top Safety Pick + award

The 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 is proving to be a very safe vehicle since it received both the NHTSA’s five-star rating as well as the IIHS’ Top Safety Pick + award, the highest distinctions delivered by both agencies.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is the American government agency that is responsible for certifying new cars are safe enough to be sold in the United States.

Since the 70s, the NHTSA has made the results of its crash tests public in an effort to help consumers choose the safest car they could and to push automakers to invest more in occupant protection.

The Volkswagen ID.4 is the brand’s first electric SUV and the first member of its ID line of electric vehicles to reach North America.

Crash tests of totally new vehicles are always interesting because they are unpredictable, but Volkswagen evidently put a lot of effort into making the ID.4 very safe, since it received the agency’s best rating of five stars.

The tests carried on by the NHTSA include a front-end collision, a side-impact collision and rollover tests that simulate some of the more common types of crashes seen on American roads.

In addition, the Volkswagen ID.4 also won the Top Safety Pick + award from the IIHS, a private organisation that also tests cars sold in North America, often putting them through more demanding tests than the NHTSA.

The ID.4 is therefore a good choice for people who put a lot of emphasis on safety in their car buying decisions since only three other electric SUVs currently on the market have received the Top Safety Pick + award for 2021: the Audi e-tron Sportback, the Hyundai Nexo and the Volvo XC40 Recharge.
