2021 Volvo XC40 Recharge Earns IIHS Top Safety Pick+ Award
It joins the Audi e-tron, Audi e-tron Sportback and Tesla Model 3 with a top score.
The 2021 Volvo XC40 Recharge is one of the safest cars available on the market, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), which awarded the first all-electric Volvo with the Top Safety Pick+ award.
The XC40 Recharge is considered “Good” in all crash tests and also performs great in crash avoidance and mitigation tests.
“The curve-adaptive LED reflector headlights installed on every XC40 Recharge earn a good rating. The SUV’s standard front crash prevention system also earns superior and advanced scores in the vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations, respectively.”
The other all-electric cars with the Top Safety Pick+ award are Audi e-tron, Audi e-tron Sportback and Tesla Model 3.
IIHS President David Harkey said:
“It’s fantastic to see more proof that these vehicles are as safe as or safer than gasoline- and diesel-powered cars. We can now say with confidence that making the U.S. fleet more environmentally friendly doesn’t require any compromises in terms of safety.”
