New Cars Increasingly Likely to Include Collision-Avoidance Safety Tech
In the United States, the Insurance Institute for Highway (IIHS) published that car manufacturers are on the right track to achieve their goal of making Automatic Emergency Braking the norm on almost every new car by 2022.
About half of the new cars produced for the US market between September 1, 2017, and August 31, 2018, left the factory equipped with an automatic emergency braking system. When the IIHS collected similar data in 2017, about one-third of the new cars built had this potentially vital technology. About 2.2 million of 2.5 million cars built by Toyota during the study period had an automatic emergency braking, making it the largest producer of cars using the technology. Nissan ranks second with approximately 1.1 million of the 1.4 million cars it built with automatic emergency braking.
