The European New Car Assessment Program (Euro NCAP) has released the latest safety test results, one of which is the BMW i4 electric car. The BMW i4 recorded a pretty good score when testing the front and side crashes.
Starting from the protection parameters for adult passengers, the BMW i4 managed to score 33.3 points or 87%. Euro NCAP noted that the passenger compartment of the BMW i4 remained stable and was able to protect the driver and passengers from the risk of serious injury.
The same thing also applies to the protection parameters for child passengers who were recorded to get a score of 43 points or 87%.
Despite being able to protect child passengers from being injured in an accident, the BMW i4 does not get a full score for the child safety features in its cabin. Regarding the protection of pedestrians and cyclists, the BMW i4 scores 38.7 points or 71% on this parameter.
BMW i4 only gets four stars is the Safety Assist parameter which only scores 10.2 points or 64%. Euro NCAP says that the BMW i4 has an Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) sensor similar to the BMW 3 Series that has been tested since 2019.
In the Euro NCAP test, the sensors owned by the BMW i4 have not been able to detect pedestrians or vehicles at intersections.
In addition, the BMW i4 also recorded several test points that did not get a full score, such as the performance of Emergency Lane Keeping and Autonomous Emergency Braking Car-to-Car.
