Nissan, NHTSA & IIHS Agree on Standard Automatic Emergency Braking by 2022

In the future, a good part of what makes our cars safe will come from active driver-assistive technologies. As part of a pact between the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), and most automakers selling cars in the US market, one of these technologies will become standard by 2022—specifically, automatic emergency braking.

Nissan is part of the group of automakers that has agreed to make automatic emergency braking standard on all of its vehicles by 2022, but you won’t have to wait that long to benefit from the technology. Most of the vehicles in our lineup at James Ceranti Nissan are already equipped with many advanced safety features, which includes automatic emergency braking, stability and traction control, antilock brakes, and numerous other safety technologies.

In fact, it’s likely that Nissan will make it standard across most, if not all, of its vehicles long before 2022 comes around. Other auto brands will just have to catch up.
