The Insurance Insitute for Highway Safety, the official test body of the auto insurance companies, released a full battery of test results for the 2011 Chevrolet Volt today, and the results were very good.

The Volt earned the top "Good" rating in the important frontal-offset and side-impact crash tests, plus Good ratings for its roof strength and head restraints. It's an IIHS Top Safety Pick. We just wish the IIHS wouldn't repeat the untruth that the Volt is an electric car in its press release -- series-parallel plug-in hybrid, please.

More details on its performance can be found here, and there are more photos and videos after the jump.
