Skoda Enyaq and VW ID.4 get five EuroNCAP stars-cars received maximum rating only

Top rating for the new Skoda Enyaq iV: In the EuroNCAP crash test, the electric SUV from Mlada Boleslav achieved the highest rating of five stars. With 86 percent of the maximum number of points, the car is currently one of the safest vehicles.

In addition, the Enyaq achieved the best result ever for occupant protection with 94 percent for adult passengers and 89 percent for children. In all other areas, too, the Enyaq always belongs to the top group. This is particularly important because the evaluation criteria were tightened again last year.

There are up to nine airbags on board the Enyaq, including a central airbag between the front seats. According to EuroNCAP, the latter works well, but the lack of a knee airbag is criticized. The safety assistants include a radar-based anti-collision system with pedestrian and cyclist detection, a blind spot warning system ("Side Assist") including an out-of-parking assistant, as well as an evasion assistant, a turning assistant and an exit warning.

The Enyaq could still be improved with measures to protect pedestrians, such as an active bonnet (which rises in a collision to protect the pedestrian from colliding with hard parts) and an emergency braking system for reversing. You can find the results of the Enyaq iV in detail in the PDF data sheet from EuroNCAP.

In the same crash test run, the VW ID.4 also received the full five stars. Both received similar scores. However, it was noticed that the local hazard warning (PDF from EuroNCAP) 4 is standard equipment on board, but is not yet available on Skoda. The car-to-car system uses WLAN radio technology to warn the following vehicles if the car has been involved in an accident or if it has stopped driving. The system can also warn of the end of a traffic jam or a construction site. Conversely, the presence of the system on board is also a prerequisite for receiving such warnings.

The Polestar 2 had also already achieved the maximum rating this year. As early as 2020, the VW ID.3 and the Mazda MX-30 received the highest rating, while the Honda e had to be satisfied with four stars.

Here are all the electric car results for 2020 and 2021 (particularly good results bold):
