The IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) conducted the first crash-test of electric vehicles in the U.S.
This is the year of all awards for these two cars that represent a greener mobility in the United States, the Nissan Leaf
and the Chevrolet Volt.
After winning last week respectively the Car of the Year and the Green Car of the Year awards, both vehicles were subjected to crash tests by the IIHS and emerge with the highest scores on all four tests: front, side, rear, and rollover.
And therefore receive the title of Top Safety Pick Award (the safest vehicles).
