Euro NCAP in China

26 November 2010

Euro NCAP awards first star rating for vehicles made in China.

The Chinese manufacturer Landwind achieved two stars in Euro NCAP's assessment. Euro NCAP says the car was limited to a two star rating by its overall performance although it came close to meeting the three star threshold for adult occupant protection. 

In comparison to competitive vehicles in its class the car remains poorly equipped, lacking a side protection airbag, a head protection device and ESC.

Dr Michiel van Ratingen, Euro NCAP’s Secretary General, said, "It is clear that vehicles from China, India and other emerging countries will become common on European roads in the next few years. Euro NCAP will ensure that consumers know what levels of safety are offered by these vehicles.

"By highlighting differences in safety performance, we aim to drive the safety of all cars towards and beyond the high levels we see from more well-established manufacturers. We are confident that Landwind and others will rise to this challenge."
