The new-gen Nissan Leaf all electric-hatchback has already received a lot of accolades since its late 2017 global introduction. Now, the electric vehicle has added another feather to its cap, which comes in form of the very important full 5 Star safety rating. This is no surprise though, as we already knew how Nissan has well equipped the all new Leaf with comprehensive and cutting-edge safety features.
The new-gen Nissan Leaf has received the highest attainable five star safety rating in the revised Euro NCAP crash tests. Interestingly, the Leaf is the first vehicle that was tested by the Euro NCAP. A huge change among the other changes in the crash test process is the assessment of the AEB or auto emergency braking system that is able to detect the presence of cyclists on the road. In the revised Euro NCAP crash tests, the current generation Nissan Leaf electric car has managed to score a great 93 percent in the adult occupation protection tests and a respectable 86 percent in the tests for child protection. The new Leaf’s safety assist systems have scored 71 percent and it bagged 71 percent for the tests for cyclists and pedestrian protection systems.
