Dubai: Reiterating the brand’s focus on the safety of its passengers, EXEED VX has cleared the C-NCAP 2021 by the China Automotive Technology and Research Center (CATARC) with flying colors.
EXEED VX bagged the “five-star” safety rating and was ranked 1st among all 7-seat medium and large SUVs since the promulgation of the new regulations in 2018 with a comprehensive score of 92.4 percent. The advantages possessed by the vehicle in its active and passive safety features are considered as the major factor to the success
EXEED VX’s success at the C-NCAP test demonstrates the strength of Chinese high-end automobile brands in safety.
C-NCAP has been one of the most authoritative third-party testing organizations of China’s automobile safety standards since the CATARC released the 1st edition of the impact scoring standard in 2006.
With the iterative development of technology in the automotive industry, the evaluation standards of CATARC have been constantly upgraded with the improvement of automobile safety levels. All-round safety performance tests are carried out on the dimensions of vehicle member protection, pedestrian protection, and active safety, which further tests the safety performance of the tested vehicles.
EXEED VX at C-NCAP
EXEED VX withstood the severe test with its tough body structure in the test. In the complete frontal impact and side impact tests, the front airbags and side curtains of the vehicle all burst. Thanks to the integrated safety cage frame, obstacles did not invade the cockpit, which remained intact after the impact, with no deformation of the A-pillars, effectively protecting the driving safety of all occupants in the first to third rows of the vehicle.
During the side impact test, EXEED VX achieved a perfect score of 20, ranking 1st among all tested vehicles since the implementation of the new regulations in 2018. In the whipping test, 40 percent offset impact test, and active safety test, EXEED VX also finished the tests with scores far exceeding the industry average.
THE STANDOUT VEHICLE
EXEED VX stands out from the crowd, thanks to its high-performance global architecture built according to global standards, the EXEED exclusive chassis architecture.
In terms of active safety, the bodywork adopts the integrated safety cage frame. In the selection of steel plates for the bodywork, the proportion of high-strength steel is as high as 85 percent, and the tensile strength of thermoformed steel plates used in B-pillars exceeds 1500MPa, providing a “capsule” safety protection for drivers and passengers.
In addition, the professional calibration team has conducted more than 1,000 simulations and more than 100 vehicle crash tests, building a 5-star+ standard mobile safety fortress for consumers.
CHAMPION ACROSS THE GLOBE
EXEED VX has won numerous honors this year. Last year, EXEED VX was awarded the “2021 Top Ten Vehicle Bodyworks of China” honor for its strong body safety performance. Its 2.0TGDI engine was also selected as one of the top ten engines of “Chinese Heart”.
In the future, EXEED will land in Europe, South America, the Middle East, and other regions one after another, bringing a safer and more comfortable high-end driving experience to consumers around the world.
