BYD Dolphin performs well and gets 5 stars in Euro NCAP tests

To share

To test the safety features present in the BYD Dolphin, Euro NCAP decided to test the sunroof and was surprised by the results. Holding the title of the best-selling electric car in Brazil, the Dolphin performed well and achieved top marks in crash tests and safety features.

The Euro NCAP team also noted that Chinese manufacturers are trying to show how advanced their cars are and compatible with established brands. The Dolphin is joined by its recently launched sibling, the Seal electric sedan, as well as China’s Xpeng P7. They all got 5 stars in the same tests.

During frontal impact tests, the body of the BYD Dolphin remained stable. The knees and femurs of the driver and front passenger were well protected, as were other important areas of their bodies. However, the protection of the driver’s chest was considered marginal.

Dolphin collects only good grades

BYD’s hatchback, which mobilized the car market, still received good marks for protecting the critical areas of the driver and front passenger in the hard barrier test. The same positive result was repeated in the evaluation of the side barrier, as well as in the side impact with the pillar. When it comes to rear-end collisions, the BYD Dolphin has a good record of whiplash protection.

It’s worth noting that both the Seal and the Dolphin have an audible alarm that detects the presence of a child in the back seat and alerts the driver if he’s forgotten. Unlike the Dolphin, there is a system that calls emergency services after a severe collision and also brakes the model to avoid the next accident.
