Crash simulations of electric cars in the EVERSAFE project

EVERSAFE is a Swedish-German project funded by the Seventh Framework Programme ERA-NET Transport Electromobility+ that has been initiated in 2012. The overall aim of the project is to provide recommendations for improved safety regulations and to find out about research needs for electrically propelled vehicles. Both, active and passive safety issues have been addressed within the project. Although full electric vehicles are the main focus, results of the project are also applicable to other electric vehicle variants including hybrid electric vehicles, fuel-cell electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.
