Shanghai Daily.com – Chinese cars arent so safe

In 2018 China Car Times was acquired by Autowise. This article originally appeared on ChinaCarTimes.com.

China is catching up, and catching up fast. Since the Chinese NCAP tests were started to test out the safety of vehicles that are going onto the market in China foreign brands have done much better, and Chinese brands havent faired so well, actually theyve done pretty badly. Especially Geely and their Freedom Vessel

The Free Cruiser sedan developed by Geely Holdings Group, which is expected to be among the first batch of models to be sold in the United States market, got only two stars – the lowest rating – in the China New Car Assessment Program, the China Automotive Technology and Research Center said this week.

The official vehicle inspection laboratory gave three stars to the A5 sedan made by Chery Automobile Co ltd and F3 sedan by BYD Automobile Co Ltd. At the other end of the scale, Toyotas Crown premier sedan earned a top five-star rating, and the institute gave four stars to Hondas City and Volkswagens Sagitar.

The tests were the first for Chinese-made models under the N-CAP program, an independent crash test drafted by Euro-NCAP, which sets standards in Europe.
