NEWS: HYUNDAI INTRODUCE A WORLD FIRST MULTI-COLLISION AIRBAG SYSTEM

The first innovators of the multi-collision airbag system, Hyundai Motor Group are excited to set new industry safety standards with their latest advancements ...

HYUNDAI MOTOR GROUP HAVE ANNOUNCED A WORLD FIRST INNOVATION, TAKING THE AIRBAG SAFETY REVOLUTION TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL. 


Shaping the future of commercialization safety standards, Hyundai is the first automotive manufacturer to develop a multi-collision airbag system. Not only does this latest innovation significantly improve airbag performance but it also decreases the risk of severe injury from multi-collision accidents.

 

Taesoo Chi, head of Chassis Technology Centre at Hyundai Motor Group said, “By improving airbag performance in multi-collision scenarios, we expect to significantly improve the safety of our drivers and passengers.”

 

“We will continue our research on more diverse crash situations as part of our commitment to producing even safer vehicles that protect occupants and prevent injuries."

 

In the car market today, there are no airbag systems that provide secondary protection when the initial impact is insufficient to cause them to deploy.

 

Hyundai Auto group are extremely proud to be the first innovators of the multi-collision airbag system that deploys effectively upon a secondary impact. How? The system is able to effectively calculate the status of the vehicle, as well as the occupants inside.

 

This is a critical innovation because once the occupants inside are forced into unusual positions, the effectiveness of existing safety technology is drastically compromised.

 

Hyundai Motor Group will implement the system in new Hyundai and Kia vehicles in the future.
