NIO ET7 gets five star safety ratings in Euro NCAP and Green NCAP tests.

The NIO ET7 electric sedan scored 91% in the Adult Occupant category and 87% for the Child Occupant category in the Euro NCAP crash tests.

The NIO ET7 has secured a five-star rating in the latest Euro NCAP safety tests. The NIO ET7 electric sedan scored 91% in the Adult Occupant category, 87% for the Child Occupant category, 73% for Vulnerable Road Users, and 95% for Safety Assist.

The ET7 also secured a further five-star rating in the latest Green NCAP results, the highest possible score under the latest sustainable rating scheme. The high-performance flagship sedan was awarded near maximum marks for energy efficiency, emissions, and low energy consumption.

The NIO ET7 is made of innovative material applications and high-strength structural design, including front crash longitudinal beams that helped the car in getting five stars. 44.4% of the upper body of the car is made of hot-stamping steel. The strong aluminum-silicon-coated hot-stamped steel composite structure ensures a torsional stiffness of up to 37,100-newton meter per degree (Nm/deg).

The structural design of the car has also helped it secure five star rating in the crash tests. The car has a trapezoidal front crash beam design. ET7 adopts a one-piece B-pillar reinforced plate aluminum-silicon coated hot forming. This structure enables the peak pressure force of the body carrying a 600kg mass battery pack to reach more than 115kN to meet the IIHS GOOD requirement five-star requirement.

The technological advancements in the car also contributed to the strong result achieved. The ET7 is equipped with seven airbags as standard, of which the Far-Side Center Airbag (FCA) is one of the first to be fitted as standard for Chinese medium and large cars. In vehicle crash testing, FCA protects front-seat occupants from secondary injuries.

The electric car comes with lots of safety and advanced driver assistance features, such as Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) system that reacts to pedestrians, bicycles, and other vehicles, Driver Fatigue Detection System, Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) and Emergency Lane Keeping (ELK). Other features such as speed limit recognition and subsequent driver warning, and its ability to quickly intervene in an emergency, contributed to ET7 scoring 95% for Safety Assist

NIO ET7 achieved near-maximum scores for energy efficiency, emissions, and energy consumption in the latest Green NCAP tests. Green NCAP is an independent initiative that promotes the development of cars that are clean, energy-efficient, and not harmful to the environment. NIO ET7 scored 10/10 in the Clean Air Index, 9.6 out of 10 in the Greenhouse Gas Index (GHG), and 9.4 out of 10 in the Energy Efficiency Index.
