Toyota Prius Plug-in | 2012 | Frontal Crash Test | High Speed Cam | NHTSA | CrashNet1

2012 Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid NHTSA Crash Test Crash test dummies representing an average-sized adult male and a small-sized adult female are placed in the driver and front passenger seats, respectively, and are secured with seat belts. Vehicles are crashed into a fixed barrier at 35 mph (56.3km/h), which is equivalent to a head-on collision between two similar vehicles each moving at 35 mph. -- Thumbs up for the crash dummies!

Honda Accord | 2012 | Pole Crash Test | NHTSA High Speed Camera | CrashNet1
A small-sized adult female crash test dummy is placed in the driver's seat and is secured with a seat belt. The test vehicle, angled at 75 degrees, is then pulled sideways at 20 mph (32km/h) into a 25-cm diameter pole at the driver's seating location. This test mimics a side impact crash involving a narrow, fixed object like a utility pole or tree. 2011 Honda Accord 2012 Honda Accord Vehicle Test Weight: 3265 lbs. Overall: 5 Stars Frontal: 5 Stars Side: 5 Stars Rollover: 5 Stars Overall vehicle score and frontal crash ratings should ONLY be compared to other vehicles of similar size and weight. Side crash rating results can be compared across all classes because all vehicles are hit with the same force by the same moving barrier or pole. -- Thumbs up for the crash dummies!

DEADLY CRASHES - WORST Crash Test Car IIHS + FAIL
DEADLY CRASHES - WORST Crash Test Car IIHS: This crash tests iihs is one of the worst crash test. New crash tests: Underride guards on most big rigs leave passenger vehicle occupants at risk in certain crashes DEADLY Crashes - IIHS Crash Tests Accident Car DEADLY Сбои: IIHS краш-тестов ÖLÜMCÜL Çöküyor: IIHS Crash Testleri Modern semitrailers for the most part do a good job of keeping passenger vehicles from sliding underneath them, greatly increasing the chances of surviving a crash into the back of a large truck, recent tests by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) show. But in crashes involving only a small portion of the truck's rear, most trailers fail to prevent potentially deadly underride. Most semitrailers are required to have underride guards. These are steel bars that hang from the backs of trailers to prevent the front of a passenger vehicle from moving underneath during a crash. Earlier research showed that the minimum strength and dimensions required for underride guards are inadequate, prompting the Institute to petition the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in 2011 for tougher standards. The Institute also asked the agency to consider applying the standards to other types of large trucks such as dump trucks that aren't required to have any underride guards. Although NHTSA hasn't responded yet, trailer manufacturers already are installing guards that are much stronger than the agency requires. These guards generally work well to prevent underride, except in crashes occurring at the outer edges of trailers, the crash tests show. One likely reason manufacturers are installing guards that are stronger than required is a tougher standard that trailers in Canada have had to meet since 2007. More recently, IIHS crash tests have drawn attention to the issue, and at least one manufacturer has started selling a trailer with an improved underride guard since the tests began. To see how well the latest guards work, IIHS engineers put trailers from the eight largest manufacturers through a series of progressively tougher crash tests. All of the trailers had underride guards that met both U.S. and Canadian standards. Both standards require a guard to withstand a certain amount of force at various points. Under the Canadian regulation, a guard must withstand about twice as much force as required by the U.S. rule at the point where it attaches to its vertical support. In each crash test, a 2010 Chevrolet Malibu (but also rolls royce crash test) struck a parked truck at 35 mph. In the first scenario, the car was aimed at the center of the trailer. All eight guards successfully prevented underride, including one from Hyundai Translead, whose previous model failed a full-width test by IIHS. In the second test, in which only half the width of the car overlapped with the trailer, all but one trailer passed. However, when the overlap was reduced to 30 percent, every trailer except one from the Canadian manufacturer Manac failed. Manac sells dry van trailers in the U.S. under the name Trailmobile. The Institute uses a 30 percent overlap for the most challenging underride test because it is the minimum overlap under which a passenger vehicle occupant's head is likely to strike a trailer if an underride guard fails. ►IF YOU LOVE CARS, YOU SHOULD SUBSCRIBE NOW TO GOMMEBLOG’S CHANNEL ►►► http://bit.ly/12ULPud ►SE AMI LE AUTO ..

2012 Toyota Prius Plug-in Speedy Technology Demo
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Toyota Prius Plug-in can travel for about 12 miles using only electricity. That is if the driver doesn't exceed 62 miles per hour and/or does not floor the accelerator. This means that the while technically the car can be driven in EV (electric vehicle) mode around town, it often and very quickly switches to standard hybrid mode making it drive and consume fuel like a standard Prius. Of course this means that the owner will still get 50 MPG but not the 95 MPGe that is possible in pure EV mode. Check out this speedy tech demo as we show you what makes the Prius Plug-in special and much more expensive.
