XPENG G9 Achieves a Five-Star 2023 Safety Rating from Euro NCAP
XPENG Motors has announced that the international variant of its flagship electric SUV, the XPENG G9, has achieved a five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP in 2023.
Euro NCAP’s five-star safety rating system provides consumers, families, and businesses with a straightforward way to compare vehicles and choose the safest option for their needs. The tests conducted by Euro NCAP replicate real-life road danger scenarios, setting the European gold standard for comprehensive automotive safety testing.
The five-star rating acknowledges the XPENG G9’s advanced body structure and extensive passive safety features, specifically designed to safeguard passengers in the event of a collision. These innovations collaborate to effectively manage crash forces, reduce impact acceleration, and minimize the risk of injuries to occupants.
This achievement follows XPENG’s earlier five-star safety rating for the international model of the XPENG P7 in October, marking the second consecutive five-star rating this year.
Brian Gu, Vice Chairman and Co-President of XPENG, commented on the accomplishment, stating, “Receiving a five-star rating from Euro NCAP for both the P7 and now the G9 is testament to the quality of our vehicles, especially given the 2023 test’s even higher standards.
As a company, we believe in the power of technology and are constantly working to improve the customer experience and safety. Our in-house engineering, enabling simultaneous and harmonious hardware and software development, gives us a strong edge in our ability to develop industry-leading smart mobility innovations.”
The XPENG G9 boasts a body structure made of robust materials, including high-strength steel, providing enhanced protection during collisions. Its cage-designed body structure ensures an efficient multi-path distribution of crash forces, shielding passengers from the full impact force.
The front of the G9 is engineered to absorb substantial energy to further protect the driver and passengers during collisions, and advanced flexing and tearing technology aids overall energy absorption throughout the vehicle.
