Recommended Practice for Electric, Fuel Cell and Hybrid Electric Vehicle Crash Integrity Testing
- Ground Vehicle Standard
The definition of high voltage (and corresponding applicability of this Recommended Practice) has been updated to include upper limits of 1,500 VDC and 1,000 VAC, consistent with international convention.
The references to crash test procedures and test conditions have been updated and clarified.
Electrolyte spillage provisions have been updated to reflect international regulatory requirements.
Component retention provisions have been updated to be consistent with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 305.
The previous version of SAE J1766 included three alternatives for providing post-crash electrical safety - electrical isolation, low voltage, and low energy. This update provides a fourth option for post-crash electrical safety, specifically an electrical protection barrier option. This fourth option aligns with ECE R94 and R95, the current draft of the fuel cell vehicle (FCV) global technical regulation (GTR), ISO 6469-3, and the consensus of international regulatory and industry experts that electrical protection barriers are foundational to in-use and post-crash electrical safety. In order to expedite acceptance of the electrical protection barriers, requirements for these electrical protection barriers were developed to verify that adequate electric shock protection is still provided after the crash. Test methods and rationale for these requirements are provided in Appendix C.
The time criterion for initiating verification of post-crash electrical safety was also changed from 5 seconds after the vehicle comes to rest to 10 seconds after initial impact. Basing the criterion on time after initial impact provides more accuracy in establishing the allowable time period and aligns the criterion with other international standards. The increase from 5 to 10 seconds accounts for the post-crash period where the vehicle or parts of the vehicle could still be moving.
The test procedures now contained in Appendices A and B have been updated and expanded.
The rationale for the 0.2 Joules low-energy option has been expanded and updated. This updated rationale is provided in Appendix D.

The Fuel Cell Standards Committee is responsible for establishing standards for hydrogen and fuel cell vehicles. Standards will cover the safety aspects of hydrogen, fuel cell, and electrical systems in the vehicle, test procedures to establish the performance of the vehicle, system/components, and interface requirements.
