Honda has reached an important milestone in the journey to make veicles in its lineup safer and smarter than ever before. The Honda Sensing ® technology, which will be standard across all Honda vehicles by the year 2022, can now be found in over one million vehicles sold in the United States. Honda Sensing ® was also honored by a study from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety, which demonstrated the technology’s effectiveness.
How Many Involved
69 percent of 2018 model-year vehicles sold by Honda have Honda Sensing ® technology installed on them, indicating that the technology’s application has more than doubled since 2016. Additionally, the study from the IIHS indicated that not only are fewer people injured in vehicles equipped with Honda Sensing ® , but the injuries are less severe and insurance claims less expensive. Honda also recently announced plans to have automatic emergency braking installed on 95% of vehicles by 2020, two years ahead of the legal requirement.
Honda Sensing ® technology is proven to reduce risk of injury and damage in collisions, as well as playing a role in reducing the number of collisions on the road in the first place. Honda’s goals point to a safer and more innovative future in the auto industry.
