30 MPH Crash test.
In accordance with ECE12

The composite monocoque successfully absorbed the impact energy with the damage restricted to the frontal box sections. Whereas a steel bodyshell would show compressive damage around the door apertures, the Midas shell maintained its integrity. The key requirement of the ECE12 test is that the steering wheel should not be displaced by more than 127mm. At the peak of the impact the steering wheel moved by 15mm, before returning to within a few mm of its original position.
