With this test, vehicles are tested for agility in extreme conditions. “Moose test” shows how the car will behave if an obstacle suddenly appears in front of it.

Many cars pass the “Moose Test” today. To pass this difficult test, the speed of the car must be 77 km / h or higher. Lately, many new cars have struggled to stay between the cones. One of them is the electric supermini Honda e. For the test, we chose the top-end version with a 152-horsepower engine. Up to a hundred such an electric car will accelerate in 8.3 seconds, and its maximum speed reaches 145 km / h.

The Km77 portal tells about the test results. The maximum initial speed of the car was 75 km / h, which technically does not meet the test conditions. At the same time, the low center of gravity has become an advantage of the electric car. It would be impossible to show a higher speed at the entrance. The zero-emission subcompact hatchback handled the slalom test well.

Interestingly, the result shown by the electric hatch is comparable to other, more powerful and expensive cars.

For example, with the executive sedan Audi A7, which is much larger and heavier. It is also identical to the performance of the Mercedes-AMG A45 S hatchback, which also passed the test at 75 km / h. So the “green” Honda e from the Japanese brand came out on a par with more expensive models.
