Nissan Teana Gets Top Marks for Safety

Friday, May 8, 2015

Tokyo- (PanOrient News) - Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. has said that their Teana model has received the highest Five Star Award for 2014-2015 from the Japan New Car Assessment Program (JNCAP) regarding overall safety performance evaluation.

The Japan New Car Assessment Program (JNCAP) was initiated in 1995 and provides an overall car safety performance evaluation which is then made public on an annual basis by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism and the National Agency for Automotive Safety and Victims' Aid.

The Teana's shock-absorbent body, high-strength cabin and six airbags produced higher than ever results in performance. An unheard of perfect score was gained in the rear-end collision neck protection performance test which was due to front seats with optimized rigidity balance between the headrest and seatback frame. This reduces any stress on the neck during rear-end collisions. The vehicle's body construction is also designed to lessen injuries to pedestrians in the event of a collision.

Nissan introduces its safety technology under its Safety Shield concept, by taking an advanced, proactive look at safety issues based on the idea that cars should help protect people. Their approach is the development of collision safety technology, preventive safety technology, including its Emergency Braking System, Emergency assist for Pedal Misapplication, Lane Departure Warning and Blind Spot Warning. Nissan’s goal is to help reduce the number of traffic accidents by producing vehicles that support the driver.

The new overall safety performance evaluation introduced in 2011 assesses comprehensive safety performance, with scores from one to five stars based on the total rating of occupant protection performance up to 100 points, pedestrian protection performance up to 100 points and seatbelt remainder up to 8 points.

Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., Japan's second-largest automotive company, is headquartered in Yokohama, Japan, and is part of the Renault-Nissan Alliance. With more than 244,500 employees globally, Nissan sold almost 5.2 million vehicles and generated revenue of 10.5 trillion yen (USD 105 billion) in fiscal 2013, according to the company.

Nissan delivers a broad range of more than 60 models under the Nissan, Infiniti and Datsun brands. In 2010, Nissan introduced the Nissan LEAF, and leads other makers in zero-emission mobility. The LEAF, the first mass-market, pure-electric vehicle launched globally, is at present, the best-selling EV in history with almost 50% share of the zero-emission vehicle portion.
