Euro NCAP announces plans for a new Truck Safety rating scheme

On the Road to Vision Zero

Traditionally providing consumers with information on car safety, today Euro NCAP announces that the safety organisation will expand its scope even further to provide detailed safety information about the safety of heavy trucks via an innovative Truck Safe City and Highway rating scheme.

Not only will this deliver enhanced safety for drivers, but it will create a market for safe technology that will allow manufacturers to innovate and advance their offering within a clear framework for safety grounded in Euro NCAP principles.
