Maximum safety: SKODA electric vehicles just as safe as models with internal combustion engines
Ideal design: ŠKODA ENYAQ iV battery pack installed in the underbody for crash safety Only in the unlikely event of damage or deformation to the energy storage unit can the battery cells ignite. To reduce this risk, the battery pack in the ŠKODA ENYAQ iV, for example, is installed in the underbody for crash safety.
In addition, the high-voltage system is designed to be intrinsically safe; in the event of a defect or accident, the electrical components are disconnected from the battery within milliseconds, so that there is no voltage and no danger to the passengers.
Independent tests, some of which go far beyond the legal requirements, have shown that the well-protected battery packs remain undamaged even if the body is deformed and that there would be no increased risk of fire in a real collision.
