ARAI did crash test of Electric Scooter for the first time, know details

Electric scooters are being liked more in India. However, due to accidents happening in scooters with this technology, questions are raised from time to time on their safety. According to media reports, crash testing of electric scooters has been done for the first time by ARAI Institute.

According to media reports, electric scooters have been tested by the Automotive Research Association of India in Pune, Maharashtra. The institute has completed a series of three crash tests at its plant.

ARAI used a high-speed camera and an accelerometer to record the data from the crash test. However, the details of the businesses whose automobiles the institute used in the crash test remain undisclosed. There have been reports that the test also involved the use of hard restraints.

In the same way groups like Global NCAP and India NCAP test automobiles for crashworthiness. In a similar vein, electric two-wheelers may be required to undergo a crash test. As a result, safety standards can be raised.

According to reports, if crash tests are made mandatory for electric two-wheelers in India, it will be a blow to companies that use cheap and substandard batteries, motors, and other parts in their products instead of the prescribed standards.

If crash testing of electric two-wheelers is made mandatory in the country, it will directly benefit the customers. During the crash test, electric two-wheelers will be tested in many ways, through which their motor, battery, chassis, etc. will be checked. The advantage of this will be that whatever options will be offered in the market, will be much better in terms of safety, and incidents like fire and malfunction will be significantly reduced.
