ASEAN NCAP: today and its future undertakings

The New Car Assessment Program for Southeast Asian Countries, or ASEAN NCAP, is the newest addition to the established NCAP initiatives around the world. ASEAN NCAP is targeted to improve the safety aspects of private cars in the region, which come second in terms of volumes and the number of fatalities based on vehicle categorisation after the two-wheelers. As NCAP is originally focusing on crashworthiness evaluation via crash tests, more NCAP organisations have already put more focus on active safety by encouraging the fitment of Safety Assist Technologies (SATs) in new cars. ASEAN NCAP views SATs as a critical necessity in ASEAN countries since they not only bring a crash avoidance element for cars but also can improve the situation on the road to address motorcycle issues.
