Euro NCAP (European New Car Assessment Program) has released its list of highest-ranked safety vehicles in 2022. With 66 new passenger cars put through their paces in 2022, the independent vehicle evaluation organization had its busiest year yet. The fact that Hyundai's IONIQ 6 electric car was voted Best in Class in the Large Family Car category proves the company's dominance in the electrification market.
Following up on its maximum five-star rating from last year, the Hyundai IONIQ 6 has been recognized as one of the safest electric cars on the European market with the Euro NCAP Best in Class 2022 award, according to Andreas-Christoph Hofmann, Vice President of Marketing, Product, and Public Relations for Hyundai Motor Europe. "Hyundai is dedicated to providing the highest degree of safety for all motorists and pioneering mobility solutions for our clients. Having won this award from Euro NCAP, we are further validated as a frontrunner in the mobility sector of the future.
To determine which vehicles are considered Euro NCAP Best in Class, we take an average across four categories: adult safety, child safety, pedestrian safety, and driver aids. The group uses the total as a benchmark for evaluating the vehicles. Best-in-class vehicles have nothing extra that wasn't already standard on the cars in their category. The optional equipment ratings will not be included.
After passing Euro NCAP's safety test last year, the IONIQ 6 took first place in the Large Family Car category. November of 2022 saw the announcement that the newest generation of Hyundai's all-electric IONIQ brand had received the highest possible rating of five stars.
