E-Vehicle and Battery Abuse Tests for Safety

Four pillars of R&D

  • Research and risk assessment
  • Battery component testing at high risk level
  • E-vehicle and system testing at medium risk level
  • Complete E-vehicle crash testing at low risk level

Since 2014, all four pillars are available as a result of long crash testing experience in combination with dedicated research on E-vehicle and battery safety, supported by Autoliv Research.
