Hyundai Motor Company’s EV-only platform E-GMP (Electric-Global Modular Platform)-based electric vehicles have all recorded the highest grades in major global crash tests conducted so far. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), which has a reputation for conducting the world’s most demanding crash test evaluations, announced the results of crash evaluations of three electric vehicles exclusively for Hyundai Motor Group this year. According to the results, Hyundai Motor Company’s Ioniq 5, Kia EV6, and Genesis GV60 all obtained the highest rating, ‘TSP+, Top Safety Pick+’. Derivative electric vehicle models were also awarded the highest rating by IIHS. In the crash test results announced on the 20th (local time), the Genesis G80 electrified model was evaluated to meet all safety item evaluation criteria and obtained TSP+. In order to obtain a TSP+ rating from the IIHS, a car must receive the highest grade of good in all six crash safety evaluations: driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraint. In addition, it must obtain a grade of ‘advanced’ or higher in the front collision avoidance system test (vehicle and vehicle / vehicle and pedestrian) and a grade of ‘acceptable’ or higher in the headlight evaluation of the entire trim. In this year’s IIHS evaluation, a total of 15 models of the Hyundai Motor Group, including internal combustion engine vehicles, were listed as TSP+.
