Five stars for the Volkswagen ID.Buzz in Euro NCAP tests

Volkswagen ID.Buzz achieves the highest score in Euro NCAP safety tests

Another eagerly awaited electric vehicle to undergo Euro NCAP testing is the Volkswagen ID.Buzz, an all-electric van that comes in both passenger and cargo versions (ID.Buzz Cargo). This update of the brand’s iconic caravan has been in great demand, and the truth is that its exterior and interior design is quite attractive, as we saw first-hand at an event in Madrid a few months ago. Such is its success that the Cargo version has been proclaimed ‘International Van of the Year 2023’.

After undergoing safety tests, the Volkswagen ID.Buzz achieved a score of five stars, the highest Euro NCAP rating. In the relevant categories, it scored the highest score of 92% out of 100 for ‘Adult Occupant’, 87% for ‘Child Occupant’, 60% for ‘Vulnerable Road Users’ and 90% for ‘Safety Assist’.

In detail, in ‘Adult Occupant’, it scored a total of 14.1 out of 16 points for ‘Frontal Impact’, 15.2 out of 16 for ‘Side Impact’, 3.9 out of 4 points for ‘Rear Impact’ and 2 out of 2 for ‘Rescue and Extrication’.

In ‘Child occupant’ it scored top marks in two of its three sections: ‘Crash test performance based on 6 and 10 year olds’ with 24 out of 24 points and ‘CRS installation check’ with 12 out of 12, while for the ‘Protection features’ section it scored 7 out of 13 points.

In the ‘Vulnerable road users’ section, where it scored the lowest of the categories, it scored 21.4 out of 36 points for ‘Pedestrian impact protection’ and 11.5 out of 18 points for ‘Vulnerable road user (VRU) AEB’, which in turn is divided into ‘Pedestrian AEB’, ‘Pedestrian AEB’, ‘Pedestrian AEB’, ‘Pedestrian AEB’, ‘Pedestrian AEB’, ‘Pedestrian AEB’, ‘Pedestrian AEB’ and ‘Pedestrian AEB’: ‘AEB for pedestrians’ with 5.7 out of 9 and ‘AEB for cyclists’ with 5.8 out of 9 points.

Finally, in the ‘Safety Assist’ category, the highest score was achieved in the ‘Driver Condition Monitoring’ section with 3 out of 3 points, followed by ‘Speed Assist’ with 2.7/3, ‘Lane Change Assist’ with 3.5 out of 4 points and ‘Car-to-Car AEB’ with a score of 5.3 out of 6.
