Hyundai Motor ‘Ioniq 5’ Wins Highest Grade in U.S. IIHS Crash Evaluation
Hyundai Motor announced on the 30th (local time) that “Ioniq 5” obtained the highest grade of “Top Safety Pick Plus” in a crash evaluation released by the U.S. Highway Safety Insurance Association (IIHS).
The Ioniq 5 is the first model of Hyundai Motor’s exclusive electric vehicle brand Ioniq. It is the first vehicle to apply Hyundai Motor Group’s electric vehicle platform E-GMP and proved its highest safety in the world’s strictest automobile safety evaluation.
IIHS is a non-profit organization founded in 1959. Every year, the company comprehensively evaluates the crash safety performance and collision prevention performance of vehicles released in the U.S. market and announces the results. Vehicles with the highest safety are given a TSP+ rating, and vehicles with good performance are given a TSP rating.
In order to receive the TSP rating, the highest grade in all six crash safety items, including △ Driver’s Small Overlap △ Passenger’s Small Overlap △ Front Crash △ Side Crash △ Roof Stiffness △ Headge, etc., must be ‘good’.
In addition, a rating of ‘advanced’ or higher in the front collision prevention system test (vehicle and vehicle and vehicle and pedestrian) and a rating of ‘acceptable’ or higher in the headlamp evaluation shall be obtained.
The TSP+ rating shall be based on a rating above good in the headlamp assessment of the full specification, not on the above conditions.
Ioniq 5 received the highest grade in all six collision safety item evaluations, as well as the highest grade in the evaluation of the forward collision prevention system. In the headlamp assessment, all trims were rated good and excellent.
So far, five models have received TSP+ ratings from Hyundai Motor, including the Ioniq 5, “Tucson,” “Santa Fe,” “Palisade” and “Nexo.” The TSP rating is four vehicles: ‘Avante’, ‘Sonata’, ‘Venue’ and ‘Santa Cruz’. 안전놀이터
