General Motors has put up a video of its crash testing facility. The video shows the company crash testing one of the Volt extended range electric vehicles. It always amazes me how many vehicles are crashed for safety testing.

The interesting part of this vide to me is that GM does a lot more crash testing that what the government mandates for vehicle safety certification. The vehicle in this video is hitting a wall and the car survives the impact amazingly well.

The car in the crash test here was recording about 200 channels of data on the vehicle and the occupants to ensure that a real person would survive this accident. Check out the video below.
