Video: Chevrolet Volt Gets Passing Grade

Safety Technology

The 2011 Chevrolet Volt earned the prestigious five-star NHTSA crash rating, which the highest possible score given by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's New Car Assessment Program. What helped to earn the five-star rating was the StabiliTrak electronic stability control system along with front, side, knee and roof-mounted head-curtain air bags. These extra added safety measures significantly reduce the full impact during a collision.

GM has also included an optional rearview camera system that features a display integrated into the navigation system screen. The Volt became the first EV to earn the highly coveted five-star crash rating since the NHTSA introduced even more strenuous testing.
