The Borgward name keeps coming up as the Stuttgart-based car brand looks to get back into the sales race in Germany and further afield.
The brand, which has roots in the industry stretching back to the 1930’s, is now owned by Chinese auto giants, Foton, and is making preparations to have this model, the BX7 SUV, ready to go by the end of the year.
One of the preparations was handing over a vehicle to crash test authority, NCAP.
The crash lab then put the SUV through the frontal offset crash test and report that it performed well.
At this stage though there is no crash test score/rating for the model as these are only reserved for full production models, the Borgward BX7 will begin life as part of a limited-edition vehicle series.
Regardless, Dr Tilo Schweers from the Borgward Group says it was another sign that the operation is moving in the right direction.
“Occupant protection has top priority during the development of our vehicles such as the BX7,”
“The results of the first crash test in a neutral, certified lab in Europe demonstrate that we are on the right track in this area.
“This positive impression will be confirmed by the additional crash tests we have planned.”
