    Out of a maximum of 32 points for adult occupant protection (AOP), the Nexon EV scored 29.86 points, earning a 5-star rating. The two tests that were performed include a ‘Frontal Offset Deformable Barrier Test’, wherein the electric SUV scored 14.26 points out of 16, and a ‘Side Movable Deformable Barrier Test’, where it achieved 15.60 out of 16 points.

    As for the child occupant protection (COP), the Nexon EV scored a dynamic score of 23.95 out of 24, a child restraint system (CRS) installation score of 12 on 12, and 9 points out of 13 for vehicle assessment.

    Difference between Global NCAP and Bharat NCAP

    There’s not much that separates the processes implemented by Bharat NCAP and Global NCAP. One of the major differences, though, is that under Global NCAP, the maximum score that can be attained for AOP is 34 points, while it's 32 points in Bharat NCAP. Other than this, the crash test protocols and assignment of ratings seem to be quite similar. Here’s an in-depth look at what's different between the two crash test ratings.
