Mitsubishi Express van gets zero stars for safety, lowest score recorded in Australia

The Mitsubishi Express van – a rebadged version of the Renault Trafic – has been issued the lowest safety rating ever applied to a vehicle in Australia. The zero star rating by the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) is the lowest safety score issued in the 28-year history of the independent authority. Despite the shock result, representatives for both car companies said there are “no current plans” to withdraw the Mitsubishi Express or Renault Trafic vans from sale locally.
