The Polestar 2 has been awarded an overall vehicle safety rating of five stars by the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the highest possible score a vehicle can achieve in the agency’s New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). Polestar says this places the Polestar 2 amongst the absolute safest vehicles on sale today and confirms the electric fastback’s five-star rating awarded by the Euro NCAP in European crash testing last year. The Polestar 2 was awarded five stars for Frontal Crash protection, five stars for Side Crash protection and five stars for Rollover protection, achieving a perfect five-star average score. The Frontal Crash test consists of a frontal barrier test simulating a head-on collision between two similar vehicles, each moving at 35 mph (56 km/h). Read original article here.
