Whoa for impressive. Not just the car (as you said, decent for sure), but even more the scary sh** that happen when things go haywire in high energy events, be it fast traveling cars, exploding high power transformers (google "Shell Pernis") or any of your choosing :eek::D

Thanks for the video. I'm a little worried about the driver's neck and back of the head. The neck twists very wild and then the head almost hits the B pillar... The passenger does get to live another day.

Hope no one will ever have to go through this test in real life.

To be quite honest (and this is no stab, as I am sure yours wasn't either @proddick ), I wouldn't want to be in a Tesla if it was hit by a ZOE.
I am happy both cars score nicely given the disingenuous nonsense about the dangers of EV's by the usual suspects.

Well, in my country about a year ago a Tesla wrapped itself around a totally non impressed tree at high speed splitting the car in two, leaving half of the battery in the car and half of it a smoldering mess on the road. No explosion of course though the fire brigade was kinda anxious touching it, which again lead to the most infuriating and insane, stupid, 100% wrong comments from "car journalists", scuse me, "expers". Yeah, the tire kicking types. The Clarkson types. Don't get me started. </rant>

True. As are fuel fires. Decent design and risk management is the name of the game.
