Euro NCAP Crash & Safety Tests of Porsche Taycan 2019
Euro NCAP performs a series of crash and safety tests on car models:
– a frontal impact test, the car impacts a rigid barrier
– an offset frontal impact test, 40% of the width of the car is striking a deformable barrier
– a pole test, the tested car is propelled sideways into a rigid pole
– a side impact test, a mobile deformable barrier impacts the driver’s door.
A series of pedestrian tests are conducted with different impactors, adult and child head form, lower and upper leg form and whiplash tests are performed on a sled.
Active safety is tested based on the car’s equipment: autonomous emergency braking systems (car to car, with a pedestrian and a cyclist target), lane support and speed assist technologies and seatbelt reminders.
