  • I have the safest car I will ever own, it is among the first cars with a crumple zone. I have an airbag which is nice but I'm not shure if it works after almost 3 decades since it was built

  • So, honest question: If compact cars result in more occupant deaths, does that mean that larger, heavier vehicles are 'safer'? I know it's not that simple, but if everyone was only concerned with 'greatest chance of personal survival', would we all be driving heavy trucks?

  • From what I've seen so far, it turns out that American cars have a smaller focus on safety. The problem is in the authorities, they do not put pressure on manufacturers, while EU pressure is much greater. That is why cars in the EU are much safer and you can see it on the price. The American car is cheaper, the product processing worse, the safety lower, the consumption higher. This can also be seen with Tesla, the quality of workmanship is quite lousy compared to most European cars.

  • A well designed EV pickup truck would resemble a 1960 VW pickup. a) an electric motor under the rear load bed, driving the rear wheels, and accessible for service through a rear-facing hatch b) Slide-mounted battery packs under the load bed, in front of the rear wheels, and accessible for service through hatches in the side panels. c) A central electrical power buss with coolant channels running to and from a front-mounted radiator. Slide-mounted battery packs plug into the power buss and coolant channels. Rear-mounted radiators may also work using cooling air intake vents in the sides. d) Another electric motor in the front located under the floor and driving the front wheels. e) Front sheet metal with a shape which resembles a humpback whale for low aerodynamic drag coefficient and to .provide room for the battery cooling radiator and front-mounted electric motor. f) Fold-down load bed sides to facilitate loading from both sides and the rear. g) Lightweight bed skirts extend up from the fold down sides to reduce aerodynamic drag. Bed skirts extend from the roof of the cab to the tailgate. h) An eight foot load bed is standard. Optionally, a shorter bed version with a four door cab and an extended wheelbase version with four door cab and an eight foot load bed. An eight foot load bed should accommodate 4 by 8 sheets of plywood or drywall laying flat. i) charging connectors on both sides of the truck to reduce charging time. Pull between two chargers and plut into both at one time. Perhaps there might be room for side-mounted spare tires on each side, in line with the rear wheels, and covered by lightweight fender skirts. Storing a spare tire under the load bed is a PITA if you should need to change a tire. Fender skirts might also be used over the rear wheels. Combined horsepower of the motors must be sufficient to maintain the posted speed limit on an uphill grade on an interstate highway while fully loaded to the maximum permissible road weight or towing the heaviest permitted trailer.

  • My vote for the most dangerous car is a Tesla on Autopilot,. a) Drives into parked fire trucks b) Tries to drive under a truck trailer which is perpendicular to the flow of traffic thinking that it is a bridge c) Turns into Jersey barriers used to separate lanes of traffic Not an Autopilot driving error but Tesla cars have also spontaneously combusted while parked.

  • The reason the mirage is more "dangerous" pertains to the car is marketed and built for. Young people. Given that driver ability is the largest variable in these statistics (I would argue) then the only logical solution moving forward to decreasing deaths would be superior driver training and autonomous vehicles I guess too.

  • The accident death rate doesn’t accurately predict the safety of a car either. Yes sports cars are on the list because of how they are driven, and cheap compacts are on the list because who buys them? Younger buyers under 25. The age group where statistically they’re all out at 3AM, drunk, blowing stop signs, speeding, texting, etc. The Mirage exacerbates this because with dealer and factory incentives, it’s the cheapest car on the market and Mitsubishi will finance anyone with a pulse. It’s also skewed by production numbers because statistically if the Miata is safer than the F-150, that doesn’t mean anything because they simply sell more F-150s.

  • Americans measure "dangerous" wrong! If your car kills people in OR outside the passengenger compartment , then it's dangerous. That's why the new smart4two lost it's flat face, because pedestrian and byciclist safety is tested in European crash tests. If your car kills more pedestrians and byciclists and car drivers than others your car is dangerous. Now how will the Cybertruck get a better pedestrian security rating than a tank? Will they add cushions outside?

  • When every car can get a 4-5 star rating...it is time to make the ratings tougher ;) They are doing that with the PowerEfficience labels in europe. In around 10 years every cooler, fridge, and so on has become A+ to A+++++ ... in short... everything under A meant nothing. So they have redesigned the requirements under the new label, which is back to G to A... of which... D-A is expected. E-F and G are more warning labels to those who make them "make them better"

  • ...Bulls**t... Most of the people doesn't know why they are on the road, not to mention the physics and mathematics behind the car. Understeer and oversteer tests when getting a license or renewing it will eliminate 80+% of the drivers. No crashes, no traffic jam, better public transport.

It's tricky to drive, it can set itself on fire and it has zero passive safety. It's cool in it's own right thou, removable cylinders, engine is made out of aluminium and magnesium alloys, you can repair the car in the plain field.
