Audi's E-Tron is the first-ever electric car to be dubbed a top safety pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, IHS. Coupled with the distinction, the IHS released a number of videos taken during crash tests of Audi's E-Tron. The E-Torn was rated as "good" across all of the different IHS categories that deem a car's "crashworthiness." Specifically, the IHS noted that the car's "Pre Sense Front" was an asset on the test.
The "Pre Sense Front" is an emergency braking system that is incorporated in the car's design. The system was able to avoid a collision during a test at 25 miles per hour.
The overall rating will help the car's marketability, as not only is it an electric vehicle, but also safety-conscious.
