When it comes to safety rating and crash tests results, editorial input from us, as well as speculation as to why a vehicle fared as it did, should be avoided.

We prefer presenting just the facts.  So, below you’ll find the results (and video/images) from the Euro NCAP safety tests of the electric Nissan e-NV200 Evalia.

Hmm. Not looking good for Nissan recently.

It’s probably the thoughest crash and safety test in the world. And it got even tougher for 2014.
Now you actually have to work really hard to get the full 5 stars. I imagine that we will see quite a few 3 and 4 star ratings for a while.

I am a bit surprised at the rating. I’ve seen a lot of these videos and the impacts look pretty good. The passenger cabin does not deform and the dummies don’t hit the steering wheel or other hard points. Head protection is always good.

Seems that the upper legs and torso suffer the most. Lack of knee airbags probably hurt a bit here, but I would guess the front bucket seats need improvement.

Say what? Didn’t you write in an Op Ed piece about why you beleived that Tesla was “right” in stating that the Tesla Model S was the “safest vehicle ever tested by NHTSA,” even though NHTSA vehemently disagrees with this assertion?

I wonder what the Tesla would get in the Euro NCAP, that would be interesting to see.
I’m guessing 3 stars, but I don’t know how the the results are weighted so worst case scenario it might get a 2 instead.

I’ve changed my mind. I’m pretty sure it would get 3 stars, no chance of a 2 or a 4 (as the model is today).

its looks pretty good for the occupants, for instance the head is green rated

but the seat belt nanny was not annoying enough for EU. no lane departure, whip lash (head rests) are too comfortable – not forward enough…

The comparable cars list is very useless, because that are old results and with the changed rating, most of them will not again get 5 stars.

how does my smart have a 4 star safety rating over this

rofl

i3 have 4 stars. And you can not compare the results from 2012/2011 with now. (i don’t know which, but one car gets 5 stars in 2011 and 3 stars in 2014).

If you study the results clearly, the e-NV200 performed quite well.
As Michael mentioned, ratings cannot be compared from year to year, the protocol changed even for 2014, so you cannot even fairly compare to last year.

If you look at the results, Adult occupant protection is actually at a 4 star level, whilst child occupant protection and pedestrian is 5 star!!!

Only reason it is 3 star is because it falls down in the active safety section (majority of the criteria is new for 2014). So not bad i say.

So in my book, Nissan have done a good job in protecting the occupants, but got penalised for not adding all the annoying beeps, flashes and constant reminders that is required, which quite frankly, most people would switch off anyway.
