We don’t normally report much on NCAP safety results – we probably should – but we do so this week because of a sweeping claim by Skoda.

t claims two of its models were the safest of all vehicles tested under the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) last year.

It says the electric ENYAQ iV and super-mini FABIA are best-in-class for the 2021 test year.

Skoda says that means the two models were the safest of all vehicles tested in their respective classes in 2021.

* THE future beckons again, with remote-controlled driverless cars to be trialled on public roads later this month in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire.

A small two-seat vehicle called the Fetch will be used in the experiment. While the car is driverless, it’s not autonomous, Imperium Drive chief Koosha Kaveh told Autocar. There’s still a human involved, but they will be sitting in a control centre controlling the car.
