CRASHWORTHINESS TESTS ON TWO ELECTRIC VEHICLES

Crashworthiness aspects of two electric vehicles were evaluated in a modest test program. One vehicle was subjected to low-speed pendulum and barrier tests and static rollover. A second vehicle was subjected to dynamic rollover using the procedure specified in FMVSS 208. Potential safety problems were exposed, and are addressed in the paper. /GMRL/
