Euro NCAP also tested two new Chinese models from the Great Wall Motor group: theOra Cat and the Wey Coffee 01who both obtained the maximum rating of 5 stars. Chinese manufacturers are now betting big on safety, with the aim of conquering the European market.
“We have seen good results from some Chinese manufacturers in the past, but also very bad results. This year, Euro NCAP will be testing more Chinese cars than it has ever done, and Great Wall Motor is truly setting the standard for others to follow. Congratulations also to Tesla for the results of the Model Y, truly exceptional and setting a new record. Tesla has shown that nothing but the best is good enough for them, and we hope to see them continue to pursue that goal in the future.”declared on this occasion Michiel van Ratingen, the general secretary of Euro NCAP.
