FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2016
ASEAN NCAP In March, ASEAN NCAP held a Safety Assist Workshop in Johor Bahru, Malaysia, attracting over 60 participants mainly from the vehicle manufacturing industry. The two-day workshop gave ASEAN NCAP the opportunity to engage with their stakeholders to improve its Safety Assist protocols, and to provide live demonstrations to promote the safety benefits of safety assist technologies. In conjunction with the workshop, two new ASEAN NCAP results were released; both were variants of the Honda BR-V and achieved 4 and 5 stars. In May, ASEAN NCAP held its 4th ASEAN Automobile Safety Forum (AASF) in Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam. Participants, including vehicle manufacturers, gathered to hear about the latest road safety trends and management in Vietnam as well as vehicle safety technologies and development, and to witness a motorcycle anti-lock braking system (ABS) demonstration. In conjunction with the forum, ASEAN NCAP released seven new crash test results. These included the adult occupant protection results from the Kia Morning and Hyundai Eon, both of which scored 0 stars, the Nissan X-Trail which achieved 5 stars and Nissan Navara, Suzuki Ertiga, Suzuki Ciaz and Isuzu MU-X, all of which achieved 4 stars. In July, ASEAN NCAP launched the new crash test result for the Perodua Bezza during a media test drive. The Bezza marked a historical milestone as the first ever sedan model produced by Perodua, Malaysia’s second national car producer, since its establishment in 1993. Some variants of the Bezza are equipped with electronic stability control (ESC) and seat belt reminders (SBR), and is an example of a safe vehicle at an affordable price. The Bezza scored 5 stars – for variants equipped with ESC and both
driver and front passenger SBRs, and four stars for variants with SBR for the driver only and no ESC. In August, ASEAN NCAP launched a new test result for the Proton Persona, which is the new sedan version of the Proton Iriz. The Persona scored 5 stars for adult occupant protection and 4 stars for child occupant protection. In September, ASEAN NCAP, in collaboration with Automobile Association of Cambodia, held its fifth ASEAN Automobile Safety Forum (AASF) in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The theme of the Forum was ‘Reducing Non-Safe Cars on the Roads’. Our Programmes Director & Asia Pacific Coordinator, Jessica Truong, represented Global NCAP at the meeting. In conjunction with the forum, ASEAN NCAP released a new crash test result for the new model of the Proton Saga – the second generation of the Saga. The Proton Saga achieved 4 stars for adult occupant protection and also 4 stars for child occupant protection. These results are an improvement from the 3 star adult occupant protection and 2 star child occupant protection results achieved by the Proton Saga in 2013. In November, ASEAN NCAP hosted the launch of the Stop the Crash Partnership in the ASEAN region in Kuala Lumpur at the Sepang International Circuit. Over 1600 people attended over two days to experience the latest crash avoidance technologies including blind spot detection, an important technology for the region due to the high number of motorcycle fatalities. The Minister of Transport of Malaysia, Dato’ Sri Liow Tiong Lai, was guest of honour and announced at the launch that the anti-skid system, electronic stability control, will be mandatory on all new passenger models in Malaysia by June 2018.
