2013 Nissan Leaf Nabs IIHS ‘Top Safety Pick’ –

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has added the Nissan Leaf to the list of cars with its prized “Top Safety Pick” designation for 2013.

Nissan’s all-electric car aced the independent organization’s tests with its highest rating of “Good” in front, side, rollover and rear crash tests.

“The IIHS ‘Top Safety Pick’ recognition speaks to the ‘zone body construction’ design from Nissan’s Safety Shield Concept to help protect occupants in a wide variety of crash scenarios,” said Robert Yakushi, Nissan director of product safety.

For anyone who may wonder about safety of production electric cars, assuming their engineering is otherwise sound, their extra heft often lets them excel in such tests compared to similarly sized vehicles.

Adding its name to Nissan Altima and Infiniti M37/M56 on the 2013 list, Nissan reiterated its commitment to the Leaf.
