Electric mobility gets mainly involved quadricycles and cars. Between these two vehicle types there are differences in terms of stability, performance, cost, autonomy and safety. The authors studied the implementation of passenger safety devices on a prototype for an electric vehicle derived from a heavy quadricycle. A finite element analysis starting from experimental results was carried out in order to determine the effectiveness in case of frontal and side crashes.
