EURO NCAP LIGHT COMMERCIAL VEHICLE CAMPAIGN: THE RESULTS HAVE JUST BEEN PUBLISHED
After more than 20 years of testing passenger cars, Euro NCAP is nowfocussing on the safety of light commercial vehicles. The European body has questioned the level of safety offered by these vehicles in relation to passenger cars and the risk they may pose to other users. UTAC CERAM, the only official Euro NCAP test laboratory in France, carried out these tests in its TEQMO center dedicated to the development of automated and connected vehicles, located in Linas-Montlhéry.
This latest campaign reveals a striking gap in ADAS equipment between passenger cars and light commercial vehicles. 19 of the most popular vans in Europe have been screened through specific and dedicated protocols. Following the publication of the results, the Ford Transit, the Mercedes-Benz Vito and the Volkswagen Transporter were awarded a gold medal.
