The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety announced today that it has completed tests of 32 small cars for its “small overlap front crash protection.” The results for plug-ins were mixed, with the Chevrolet Volt earning an “acceptable” rating, and the Nissan LEAF electric car getting a “poor” rating. The new small overlap test, introduced in 2012, replicates what happens when the front corner of a vehicle collides with another car or an object such as a tree.
Both the Chevrolet Volt and Nissan LEAF may be offered with battery choices. It's a trend that makes sense.
Talking with Tony Posawatz makes one optimistic about the future for electric vehicles. The executive who helped create GM’s Volt, and tried to save Fisker Automotive, is now spreading his talent around to many EV-space companies and he is stoked. “I am a passionate believer in electric drive tech and auto clean tech stuff,” he told PluginCars.com.
