The latest Euro NCAP crash test results are out and the MG ZS EV has received an impressive 5 star rating. The rating applies for both LHD and RHD models. However, do note that the tested model is a Euro-spec one with standard active safety features such as Autonomous Emergency Braking and Lane Assist System, in addition to passive safety systems such as the airbags and seat belt pretensioners.
The MG ZS EV was subjected to frontal offset impact, frontal full width impact, side crash, and pole crash tests.
For Adult Occupant Protection, the report said that the passenger compartment of the ZS EV remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of both the driver and passenger.
In the full-width rigid barrier test, the protection of the driver was good for all critical parts of the body. For the rear passenger, readings of chest compression indicated a weak level of protection but it was good or adequate for other parts of the body. In the side barrier impact, all critical body areas were well protected and the ZS EV scored maximum points in this test, the report added.
As for Child Occupant Protection, the report said that in the frontal offset test, protection of both child occupants was good or adequate with the exception of the neck of the 10-year dummy, for which readings of neck tension indicated marginal protection. In the side barrier test, protection of all critical body areas was good for both 6 and 10-year dummies and the ZS EV scored maximum points in this part of the assessment, the report added.
