Safely on the road in electric cars
Efficient, subcompact vehicles with electric drives provide an excellent opportunity to push forward electromobility. However, traffic experts warn that the current safety standards of the L7E vehicle class are not sufficient for wide-scale deployment in traffic. Researchers of the Visio.M consortium's 'Safety' subproject have accepted this challenge and are now demonstrating how even light and efficient electric vehicles can achieve an acceptable level of safety.
