Tuv sees black for Tesla: Cybertruck would not get approval in Europe

  • Because the registration of cars in Europe and the USA is fundamentally different.
  • In Germany, vehicles go through a type approval process involving manufacturers and authorities – and independent technical services such as the TUV.
  • According to Teller, 50 to 60 regulations must be complied with.
  • In the USA, on the other hand, it is enough if the car manufacturers themselves certify that their cars are roadworthy.
  • Because passive safety and pedestrian protection are very important in Germany.
  • The body must therefore be designed in such a way that it deliberately deforms in an accident and absorbs the energy of the impact in order to minimize injuries.
  • "The front of the vehicle must not be stiff," says Teller.
  • Tesla's cybertruck, according to him, would therefore currently have no chance of being approved in Germany and Europe.
  • "It's still a big task for Mr. Musk," says Teller.
