NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- The Chevrolet Volt earned a top five-star rating in thee federal government's new, tougher crash test rating system.
Under the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's new rating system, all vehicles are given a single rating of one to five stars encompassing front and side impact safety as well as resistance to rollovers.
The Volt earned four stars for occupant protection in front-end crashes, five stars for side crash protection and five stars for resistance to rolling over.

They tested the 1 that DIDN’T CATCH FIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Seems like a clear conflict of interest that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is the one handing out the safety rating.
It’s much easier to avoid accidents when you’re not moving.
Easy to do since NO ONE is buying this road apple!
Na actually due to government regulations and conflict of interest they had to limit the scope of the tested to only government produce failures.
Funny I see more of most 70 classics than I see any Chevy volts...
Can we believe anything that this government says? I don’t think so.
It cures gout to!!!
Does anyone give a s**t?
Well hell yes its the safest.... It won’t run. What did the fire department rate it at as a fire hazard ?
My in-laws bought one of these. Right after they installed solar panels. If they do it right, they now drive off the grid.
I said that it’s pretty expensive, and the father in law’s response was (a) it was the same price as a BMW and he didn’t want to help the Germans, and (b) not using gas de-funds the terrorists.
So I actually have a tough time arguing that.
... we are not "funding" the terrorists, Obama is by his "no drill here" policy.
True...They need to test one that doesn’t have a dead battery...
So does my Hyundai!
id bet 90+% of all americans would buy a prius at half price of the volt b4 buying the volt
Volt is wonderful except for being ugly and expensive.
Obammy can shove this gub mint motors can of crap up his ole wazoo.
So does my KIA.
This is no surprise. The less time a vehicle is in operation, the less chance of it being in a crash situation. (My ‘87 Alfa was the safest car on the planet ;-)
