Euro NCAP calls to make ADAS more widely available in small panel vans

28 March 2024

Euro NCAP calls on carmakers to make ADAS more widely available in small panel vans.

Euro NCAP has released the crash avoidance ratings for eight vans in the small panel van category, most of which have equivalent passenger versions.

Unlike Euro NCAP’s car safety rating, the organisation’s commercial van rating focuses specifically on crash avoidance technology. This is because in van crashes, by far the most casualties are in the opponent vehicle or vulnerable road users. This release is particularly significant because it delivers a snapshot of the safety of small panel vans currently available to businesses before new rules on Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) come into effect in the General Safety Regulations (GSR) in July.
