The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) awards the 2013 Ford Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid with a five-star safety rating after equal ratings were given to the 2013 Ford Fusion and 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid five-star ratings.

The NHTSA five-star rating is the government’s highest-possible vehicle safety rating. It is determined after severe testing procedures as part of the NHTSA’s New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). Crash tests combine scores from frontal, side-impact, and rollover crash tests.

The significance of the NHTSA five-star safety rating for the 2013 Ford Fusion Energi is reflected in the fact that the organization decided to test plug-in vehicles separately from their gasoline and hybrid counterparts, which was decided because electrified vehicles are beginning to increase in market share.
