The electric hatchback, which is scheduled to go into production at the end of 2025, has begun testing for passive safety. The developers shared a simulation that includes a three-dimensional model: such tests allow assessing the car’s safety without the large costs of real collisions. Such tests usually precede real crash tests.

The simulation uses a calculation model, which in turn consists of physical and mathematical models of all the components of the Atom. During a collision, it behaves like a real car.

Atom developers have already conducted thousands of such crash tests. Among them, for example, modeling a frontal impact with a wall and a barrier with partial overlap, side impacts with a pole and a barrier, impacts from behind, and others.

It is claimed that the Atom already in its current form meets all safety requirements. And this is despite the fact that it does not have central roof pillars: this solution allowed for the installation of convenient hinged doors, but made the body of the electric car less rigid. In tests, Atom is guided by Russian, European and Chinese certification requirements, as well as ARCAP, C-NCAP and ENCAP safety ratings.

According to the latest data, Atom should enter the market in 2025. The preliminary cost is from 2.9 to four million rubles excluding government subsidies.
