South Korean automaker Kia announced that its flagship large all-electric SUV, the EV9, has received a prestigious five-star rating in the European New Car Safety Assessment (Euro NCAP). The EV9's notable safety features were highlighted, particularly for passenger protection and the safeguarding of its high-voltage battery during collisions, emphasizing its secure structural design.
The EV9 garnered commendation for its impressive child safety measures, achieving the highest score in the child protection category for both frontal and side crash tests. The vehicle's ability to absorb impact and protect the passenger compartment received positive recognition.
One standout feature of the EV9 is its automatic notification system activated upon airbag deployment. This technology plays a crucial role by automatically relaying key details, such as the number of occupants and the collision's direction, to the emergency rescue center. The swift transmission of this information aims to expedite critical assistance in the event of an accident.
The Euro NCAP rating further solidifies the EV9's position as a top-tier electric SUV in terms of safety standards, reflecting Kia's commitment to delivering secure and advanced vehicles to the market.
