Association of Global Automakers' Statement on NHTSA's NCAP Modernization:
Modernizing and reforming the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) is great news for consumers and the automotive industry. And most importantly, it will save lives. Personal transportation in the United States is evolving at a rapid pace through the development of the next generation of automotive safety technologies such as automated and connected vehicles. Global Automakers applauds the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for their efforts to modernize NCAP because it will support and speed the expansion of these lifesaving technologies into the marketplace. The NCAP program has a 40-year history of leading consumer information programs around the world and the industry and government will continue to work together to save lives.
