Two Chevrolets Earn Five-Star Euro NCAP Ratings

0

Issued recently by the European New Car Assessment Programme (NCAP) were top safety rankings for two Chevrolet vehicles.  Both the 2012 Volt and 2013 Malibu have earned five-star safety ratings which are the highest given by the tougher-than-nails outfit.  Not easily received, the Volt actually has managed to become the first and only electrified vehicle from America to earn a top ranking from the NCAP in all categories.  The euro-spec Malibu, which doesn’t differ too much from the soon-to-be released U.S. car, will be the first time the Malibu name will make it across the pond. 

“The results confirm that both vehicles meet today’s highest safety standards. The Volt’s safety performance and propulsion concept highlight the reliability and practicality that is inherent to this outstanding design,” said Wayne Brannon, president and managing director of Chevrolet Europe.  With the NCAP five-star award, the Volt now has three top-ranking accolades from safety administrations.  Earlier in the year, the North American National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) awarded the car with a five-star rating.  In April, 2011, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) named the Volt a “Top Safety Pick”; their highest ranking trophy.
