The Green NCAP program was launched this spring under the auspices of the Euro NCAP association dealing with crash tests of new models. The task of specialists is to evaluate the results of a series of tests on a 10-point scale, the purity of the exhaust of cars and their energy efficiency. The final grade is set on the system of five stars.
The highest rating for environmental friendliness was expectedly honored by the electric Nissan Leaf. The same 10 points also rated the exhaust cleanliness of a Mercedes-Benz C200 d 4Matic with a diesel engine. Experts noted that this result was achieved thanks to an effective cleaning system.
For energy efficiency, Leaf and C200 received 8.5 and 5.3 points, and the total score was five and three stars, respectively. Audi A4 Avant g-tron earned 8.7 and 4.7 points (three stars), Renault Scenic – 8.6 and 5.9 points (three stars), and Opel Corsa of the previous generation – 9.0 and 6.0 points (four stars).
