Porsche Taycan - Crash & Safety Tests 2019

The passenger compartment of the Taycan remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of theknees and femurs of the driver and passenger. Porsche showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants ofdifferent sizes and to those sitting in different positions. In the full-width rigid barrier test, protection of all critical body areas was good oradequate for both occupants, with the exception of the rear passenger's chest, for which dummy readings of compression indicated amarginal level of protection. In the side barrier impact, protection of all critical body areas was good and the car scored full points in thistests. In the more severe side pole test, protection of the chest was adequate and that of other body areas was good. Tests on the frontseats and head restraints demonstrated marginal protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometricassessment of the rear seats also indicated marginal whiplash protection. The standard-fit autonomous emergency braking (AEB) systemperformed well in tests of its functionality at the low speeds at which many whiplash injuries occur. However, the Taycan was not awardedthe points for these tests as good dynamic performance in the front seats is a prerequisite for AEB scoring.
