Now that Polestar is technically its own brand separate from Volvo, you may be wondering if its cars will meet the same ridiculously good safety standards that Volvo has come to be known for. Well the Polestar 1 crash test proves that yes, yes they do.

So far, Polestar has only released a short video of their own front collision test for the 600 horsepower hybrid Polestar 1 at the Volvo Car Group crash testing facilities in Gothenburg, Sweden. Check it out:

Since carbon fiber shatters and cracks to dissipate energy instead of warp and bend like steel, the design approach to the front crumple zone had to be totally different.

Polestar claims most of the impact energy was absorbed by the designed crash structure, with the rest being mitigated and absorbed by the carbon body panels, which the company claims didn’t show signs of misalignment or warping. It doesn’t even look like the windshield cracked in the crash.
