Global NCAP has shared test results for the Great Wall Steed 5 pickup truck for the South African market.

The car of the Chinese company simply failed the tests. The specialists decided to choose for testing the basic modification of the model, which costs 202,000 South African rand. Moreover, its equipment is very meager, for example, there are not even airbags.

Simulating a frontal collision at a speed of 64 km / h, the head of the driver dummy hit the steering wheel hard, and the passenger’s head hit the front panel. At the same time, it is noted that the interior of the car was severely deformed, that is, most likely, even the presence of airbags would not have saved the passengers of the pickup, including the driver, from serious injuries.

According to experts, everyone in the cabin of the Chinese pickup is at risk of injury as a result of the accident, which is more likely to lead to death, for this reason, they gave the vehicle a “score of 0”. As a reminder, Great Wall is a large Chinese car manufacturer. Since 1998, this concern has been the leader in terms of sales of pickups in China.

In addition, it was recently reported that a render of an electric modification of the Ford F-150 pickup was published on the Internet. It is worth saying that such a car will differ from the standard model by the presence of a large light strip in front.
