20 Automakers Will Make AEB Standard by 2022

You're driving into Burlington on 189, and traffic is backed up so far on Shelburne road that it has come to a complete stop. Somewhere in the stop-and-go, you go when you should have stopped, and rear-end the car in front of you.

In the near future, this situation will never be a problem again.

Twenty automakers, including Subaru, Toyota, Ford, GM, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Mazda, Audi, BMW, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Volkswagen, and Volvo have pledged to make automatic emergency braking (AEB) a standard feature on all models and trims in their lineups.

The industry-wide goal is for this to be accomplished by 2022, though some automakers plan to have AEB standard much sooner.

Vehicles with AEB can detect imminent collisions and apply the brakes to rapidly decelerate before impact. In low-speed collisions, usually under 20mph, this can bring the car to a stop and avoid a collision altogether. At higher speeds, it will mitigate damage.

Many current vehicles, including those in our used inventory in Williston, already feature AEB technology, typically as an optional package. Visit Earthycars to see what we have in stock!
