Toyota Motor Corporation announced that the total global number of vehicles equipped with Toyota Safety Sense – a set of active safety technologies designed to help prevent or mitigate collisions across a wide range of traffic situations- has reached the 10 million unit mark, only three and a half years after its initial introduction in 2015.
Toyota Safety Sense is currently equipped in approximately 90 percent of Toyota passenger vehicles on the Japanese, North American and European markets. At present, it has been introduced in a total of 68 countries and regions, including China, other selected Asian countries, the Middle East, and Australia.
It is anticipated that by the end of this year 3 million vehicles in Japan, 5 million cars in North America and almost 2 million units in Europe will be equipped with Toyota Safety Sense.
In real-world traffic conditions, the resultant effects of accident reduction can be clearly seen, such as a reduction in rear-end collisions of approximately 70%, rising to approximately 90% in conjunction with the Intelligent Clearance Sonar (ICS).
