Sacrificing your own company’s vehicles in the name of your customers' research is becoming a new trend these days. Now it’s time for VW Scania Truck to become the collision object when a car is crashed in the name of science.
The main goal here is testing to ensure potentially volatile battery packs for its electrically infused semis are as secure as possible during a collision. It takes a real dramatic real-life crash to test that.
After several months of planning, development, and simulations the results are positive as after a direct impact, none of the EV’s battery cells didn’t suffer any damage.
