Volkswagen: 5 Stars from Euro NCAP for the ID. Buzz
The European test organisation Euro NCAP has announced its latest vehicle safety test results. With the ID. Buzz, a new Volkswagen model has also been awarded a “very good” rating and received the best possible score of five stars.
As the Volkswagen bus of a new era, the ID. Buzz has already received many national prizes and awards in the short period since its launch. Another important award now joins these awards: five stars for vehicle safety from Euro NCAP (European New Car Assessment Programme). This represents an excellent overall rating both for collision and occupant protection and reflects the proper equipment combined with comprehensive and practically-oriented accident avoidance technology.
The Volkswagen ID. Buzz is equipped as standard with driver, front passenger, centre and side airbags in the cockpit and curtain airbags in front of the windows. With a score of 92 % of the maximum possible points for occupant protection, the electric bus from Volkswagen achieved an excellent result due to the combination of airbags and the corresponding body structure design.
Euro NCAP also attaches great importance to accident avoidance. Since the Volkswagen ID. Buzz is equipped as standard with numerous driver assist and emergency braking systems that also impressed the testers when put through their paces, the vehicle achieved a score of 90 % of the total available points in the “Safety Assist” category.
