Crash Testing


Crash tests are an established part of vehicle development activities. This is where the fundamental behavior of the overall vehicle is determined as an input variable for development, where development work is reviewed, and where final approval of the new vehicle takes place.
 
The crash test facility at our Alzenau site in Germany enables us to reproduce real-world crash situations under laboratory conditions. Vehicles with a weight of up to 8 tons and speeds of up to 125km/h can be tested in different situations and under the toughest conditions.
 
In addition to the standard tests involving frontal, side, and rear collisions, it is also possible to reproduce less common accident scenarios, such as vehicle rollovers and collisions between two moving vehicles.
