What are some crash safety ratings for all electric cars?

Which of the 2022 electric cars has the best safety ratings? I really want an electric car but I also want to make sure that whatever car I’m driving is really safe. Do you have a recommendation?

There are a lot of
electric and hybrid cars
on the market right now, so knowing which ones are the safest can be challenging. Here are the crash safety ratings for the safest fully electric cars available in 2022. Note that most of these cars were scored on a scale of one to five, but a couple of them were rated using the good to poor scale, which has been parked in the parentheticals:
  • 2022
    E-Tron: Five stars (good)
  • 2022 Audi E-Tron Sportback: Five stars (good)
  • 2022
    MX-30 EV: Five stars
  • 2022
    Nissan Leaf

  • 2022
    Tesla Model Y
