Audi e-tron first EV to earn 2019 Top Safety Pick Plus [Video]

Audi's e-tron crossover is the first pure electric vehicle to earn a Top Safety Pick+ award for 2019.

The EV received 'good' ratings for all crashworthiness tests, a 'superior' assessment for its front-crash prevention system, and the highest score for its standard static LED headlights with high-beam assist.
