Since its establishment in 1997, Euro NCAP has been the catalyst for significant and sustained advances in automotive safety. The independent crash tests and continuously evolving assessment protocols have saved an estimated 76 thousand lives in the EU.
Today, during its 20th Anniversary celebrations, Euro NCAP launched its Road Map 2025, setting out priorities for the mobility and technological revolution the auto industry is just beginning to experience. Their objective is to offer clarity and confidence to motoring consumers, highlighting new automated driving technologies. At the same time, raising awareness of the benefits of these technologies, whilst also helping to ensure their safety potential is fully realised.
As the Road Map 2025 makes clear, Euro NCAP will challenge vehicle manufacturers to offer the best possible technologies as standard in all segments and countries, protecting not only car occupants of all ages but also increasingly addressing the safety of other, more vulnerable road users.
