NHTSA Crash Tests: Frontal and Side

Side impact with pole:

I especially like that the window wipers are tested to make sure they work after the side impact. Whimsical.

Edit: Nevermind, looks like the wipers came on from the impact. Not as whimsical. Really digging the matte white interior, though.

Results sure do look good. That pole test is brutal. I watched some other videos (like the XC90) and the Volt seems to do excellently here.
Frontal crash test was very impressive. Door frames look fine. Occupants look fine. Side impact not bad as well. It would have been nice to see the footwell on the offset crash, since it looked compromised.
If you go to IIHS' website, they have measurements for everything. You can compare against other vehicles. I believe the S90 and Model S are good benchmarks to look at.
