Electric vehicles (EVs) are becoming increasingly popular due to their environmental benefits and advanced technology. One of the key aspects of EVs is their enhanced safety features, which provide drivers with a secure and reliable driving experience.
Addressing Two-Wheeler Safety Concerns
Two-wheelers are 30 times more prone to road fatalities compared to other vehicles. While helmets serve as the primary safety measure for these vehicles, there is a need for a holistic solution to prevent road accidents. Electric two-wheelers have untapped potential for safety, stability, and comfort. The compactness of EVs is key to unlocking possibilities for safety and stability, with advancements in stabilization technology enabling efficient and affordable solutions. Narrow tilting twin-wheel (NTT) technology offers both stability and agility for two-wheelers, enhancing their safety on the road.
Webex Collaboration App in Audi Vehicles
The Webex collaboration app will be available in select Audi 2024 model year vehicles, making it the first app for hybrid work in these models. The Webex automotive application will be accessible through the in-vehicle Audi Application Store, allowing drivers to download the app from the infotainment system. To ensure driver safety, Webex goes into an audio-only mode when the car is in transit. Drivers will also have access to Webex’s built-in AI features for best-in-class noise removal and voice optimization. The Application Store consistently ensures that the applications in the vehicle meet the high safety requirements of the Volkswagen Group.
Crash Safety and Fire Prevention in Electric Cars
Electric cars are built differently from internal combustion engine (ICE) cars due to the absence of an engine. However, the way in which an electric car reacts to a collision is similar to an ICE car. Vehicle manufacturers have taken great care in making sure that EVs are designed to the same high standards as ICE cars. Crash safety for all cars has improved dramatically in the past 25 years, with modern ICE and electric cars equipped with safety technology to decrease the likelihood of a crash, including automatic emergency braking (AEB), lane-keeping assist, and blind spot monitoring.
Insurance Rates and Safety Ratings
Although electric cars can catch fire, such incidents are very rare. Manufacturers have gone to great lengths to ensure that fires don’t happen. Insurance companies consider safety ratings when determining premiums, and cars with higher safety ratings and advanced safety features are likely to have lower insurance rates. Consider this when making your final decision on a car purchase, as investing in an electric vehicle with advanced safety features can provide a secure and reliable driving experience while potentially saving on insurance costs.
