2017 Chevy Bolt vs 2017 BMW i3 Crash Test & Rating – Video

2017 Chevy Bolt vs 2017 BMW i3 Crash Test & Rating – Video

The Chevrolet Bolt was introduced in the 2017 model year. The car is a plug-in battery-electric vehicle with no gasoline or diesel engine to help power the car. The EPA city and highway values listed below are based on a comparison of the energy content of a kWh of electricity vs. a gallon of gasoline.

Structure
The driver space was maintained well, with maximum intrusion of the lower interior of 12 cm at the lower hinge pillar. Upper interior intrusion measured 7-8 cm at the hinge pillar and instrument panel.

Injury measures
Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.

Restraints and dummy kinematics
The dummy’s movement was well controlled. The dummy’s head loaded the frontal airbag, which stayed in front of the dummy until rebound. The side curtain airbag deployed and has sufficient forward coverage to protect the head from contact with side structure and outside objects.

The BMW i3 was introduced in the 2014 model year. The car is a plug-in battery-electric vehicle with an optional 2-cylinder gasoline engine “range extender” to assist in charging the battery. The EPA city and highway values listed below are based on a comparison of the energy content of a kWh of electricity vs. a gallon of gasoline. The battery capacity and weight of the car were increased beginning with the 2017 model year.

Structure
The driver space was maintained well, with maximum intrusion of the lower interior of 6 cm at the lower hinge pillar. Upper interior intrusion measured 3-4 cm at the hinge pillar and instrument panel.

Injury measures
Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.

Restraints and dummy kinematics
The dummy’s movement was well controlled. Because the car was deflected off the barrier and decelerated more gradually than is typical in this test, the dummy’s head moved toward the inflated frontal airbag but never reached it before the head began to rebound. The side curtain airbag deployed and has sufficient forward coverage to protect the head from contact with side structure and outside objects. The side torso airbag also deployed.
