Seems to do effectively on AEB check.
We hate to see a wonderfully good Jaguar I-Tempo get destroyed. The exception to this, after all, is security testing, the place the one occupants of the car are crash check dummies. In that case, we’re prepared to sit down again, roll tape, and watch the carnage. We invite you to do the identical.
Within the video above, you’ll witness no less than 4 examples of the all-electric crossover being sacrificed to the gods of car security. The diety in query right here is the European New Automotive Evaluation Program (Euro NCAP) and apparently, they like what they see within the crumpling of the I-Tempo. They’ve blessed the car with a 5-star score.
The company breaks down that score as effectively, providing 4 separate scores. Right here, it achieved a 91 % for grownup occupants and 81 % for little one occupants. Assessments for “weak street customers” scores 73 % and it will get an 81 % within the security help class. You possibly can learn all of the gory particulars within the full 14-page report (PDF).
Moreover the standard full entrance impression, entrance offset impression, facet and pole impacts, the video additionally encompasses a take a look at its automated emergency braking (AEB) system. That function got here lifeless final in a latest check by a Norwegian publication, however right here it appears to carry out effectively at 50 kph (31 miles an hour). It does undergo an impression at a barely sooner 65 kph (40.39 mph), however the harm actually appears mitigated.
Additionally attention-grabbing is the pedestrian head impression check. With a view to lower the extent of damage to an unlucky pedestrian, the I-Tempo has sensors in its bumper which might detect a collision with an individual. If that occurs, an airbag below the hood pops it up, which might reduce the extent of damage. The report says safety offered by the hood “…to the top of a struck pedestrian predominantly ranged from marginal to good.“
