Fatalities per 10,000 Nissan Vehicles

Key Achievements for Nissan Safety Technology

In January 2015, we expanded Intelligent Emergency Braking to more models. By the end of fiscal 2015, the technology was available on nearly all vehicle categories sold in Japan, including electric vehicles and commercial vehicles, and standard on all major models. In North America, it is now standard on several models including the Pathfinder, Altima and Rogue. In Europe, it is available on the Juke, X-Trail, Qashqai, Micra and other key models. The technology has been adopted for several new models launched in fiscal 2018, including the new Altima in North America, the Nissan LEAF e+, and the new Nissan Dayz in Japan.
Our vehicles have earned high safety ratings on many public and governmental tests held in various regions. In Japan, our 11 major models featuring the Intelligent Emergency Braking, including the Note and Serena, were approved under the Advanced Emergency Braking System certification launched by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism in fiscal 2018.
