(Elbil24): It attracted a lot of attention when the Renault Zoe, which is one of the best-selling electric cars in the world, was recently completely slaughtered in the Euro NCAP comprehensive crash and safety test. As the third car in history, the car received a rating of 0 out of 5 stars after testing.

From full house to massacre

The results are even more surprising to see because this 2013 car got 5 out of 5 stars in the same test. However, developments on the car front have made great strides since then, and it is significantly expected a car to get a full score in 2022 rather than in 2013.

Among other things, Zoe was told that it lacks the combined head and chest airbags found in most modern cars, and lacks the safety assistant that is almost considered standard in 2022.

It wasn’t long before news emerged that Zoe was not included in the Norwegian importer’s future plans.

Among other things, the Megane E-Tech was praised for the fact that the passenger compartment did not deform from either a front or side collision, and that the protection of the passenger and all critical body areas was good or adequate.
