Global NCAP Award 2012 goes to Bosch

12 June 2012

 Bosch has received the Global NCAP Award 2012 for developing and launching the Electronic Stability Program (ESP®). The award, which is conferred by the Global New Car Assessment Programme, was presented on 24 May 2012, during the consumer safety organisation's annual meeting in Malacca, Malaysia. Wolfgang Hiller, president of the Bosch Chassis Systems Control division in Japan, accepted the award on behalf of Bosch. The prize was handed over by RoadSafe patron His Royal Highness Prince Michael of Kent.


Global NCAP’s rationale for this award was ESP®’s high level of effectiveness and its ability to significantly reduce the number of road accidents and fatalities – thereby supporting the aims of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety. The target of this United Nations campaign is to significantly limit the rise in the number of road deaths forecast for the period 2010 to 2020. ESP®’s importance is also recognised by the newly-established local NCAP organisation for the ASEAN nations, ASEAN NCAP. Havingthe anti-skid system as standard equipment is a pre-requisite for the highest rating of five stars.
