Which Cars Are The Safest, Have Zero Fatalities?

The Insurance Institute for Highway safety examined fatalities involving 2011 model year vehicles, looking at how many driver fatalities occurred in a particular model over the course of a year of operation, expressed as a rate per million registered vehicle years.

It found there was an average of 28 driver deaths per million registered vehicle years through the 2012 calendar year, down from 48 deaths for 2008 models through 2009. The study also found nine vehicle models with driver death rates of zero. When the institute looked at the issue eight years ago, there were no models with driver death rates of zero.
