Newer Cars Are Much Safer Than Old Cars According to the NHTSA Report

That’s not a secret that new cars are much safer than old cars, but what we did not know is by how much. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration just released a report highlighting the added safety of newer cars and trucks over older cars and trucks, and attaching real data to an otherwise assumed theory is always a good idea.

 

Here are some of the most powerful data points worth seeing:

  • 55 percent: Occupants fatally injured in vehicles built prior to 1984

  • 53 percent: Occupants fatally injured in vehicles built between 1985 and 1992

  • 46 percent: Occupants fatally injured in vehicles built between 1993 and 1997

  • 42 percent: Occupants fatally injured in vehicles built between 1997 and 2002

  • 36 percent: Occupants fatally injured in vehicles built between 2002 and 2007

  • 31 percent: Occupants fatally injured in vehicles built between 2008 and 2012

  • 26 percent: Occupants fatally injured in vehicles built between 2013 and 2017


 

Using the most recent fatal crash data, this analysis supports previous research in finding that a higher proportion of the occupants of older MY vehicles suffered a fatal injury. In addition, the proportion of vehicle occupants who were fatally injured increases with the age of the vehicle.

  • Audi Teams Up With Hyundai To Develop Hydrogen Fuel Cell Tech
    25 Jun 2018

    Hydrogen fuel-cell technology is promising but also requires a lot of investment. And while some automakers are going at it alone, others are collaborating on fuel-cell development.

Both carmakers have been investing heavily in fuel-cell development for years. Audi rolled out its first A2H2 prototype in 2004, the Q5 HFC in 2008, an...

  • Audi And Airbus To Work On Air-Taxi Project Testing In Germany
    21 Jun 2018

    Since the early 20th century, visionaries, investors, and automakers have played with the idea of a flying car. Audi, along with Airbus and several government entities, has signed a letter of intent to start the Urban Air Mobility project in Ingolstadt, Germany.  The press release calls out the Pop.Up Next concept displayed earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show. That concept worked by building an electric car that could detach from its motorized base and fly around the city via a quadcopter. The motorized base would need full, level 5 autonomous driving technology as the system ...
