ArcelorMittal congratulates Volkswagen on EuroNCAP 5-star safety rating for ID.3


Volkswagen’s newest small family car, the electric ID.3, has received a five-star rating in the Euro NCAP (European New Car Assessment Programme) safety test. The vehicle is the first to be based on Volkswagen’s modular electric drive matrix (MEB). All Volkswagen cars are making use of advanced high strength steels (AHSS). This enables Volkswagen to achieve the best compromise between range, cost, and vehicle dynamics.

The EuroNCAP tests included frontal impact, lateral impact, and whiplash tests. Based on the results, EuroNCAP determined that protection levels for adult occupants was 87 percent, and 89 percent for children.

The ID.3’s extensive use of safety systems resulted in protection levels of 71 percent for vulnerable road users. Safety assist features such as lane assist were also highly rated by EuroNCAP at 88 percent.

ArcelorMittal would like to congratulate Volkswagen on the ID.3’s impressive safety performance.
