ThE Euro NCAP organisation have given most EV's a five star rating but have doubts about the safety aspects of their size - not really a surprise.
What is surprise is the excellent scores of the Chinse and Vietnam EV's. 3 of 4 Chinese got 5 starts ( which the popular KIa EV9 didn't' get ) and the other two got 4 stars .like the car from Vietnam
Any notion by European car makers that they can outsell China on safety or range seems unrealistic.
The "heavy is unsafe" comment is I think very similar to the US studies but with the existing fleet of small cars in Europe and much closer proximity to pedestrians it is a much more serious issue in Europe I think
