Before you lies Euro NCAP’s roadmap for the period between 2020 and 2025. The document provides guidance on the future developments and activities of the European consumer safety program and may serve as a reference for the automotive industry and other stakeholders.

Forward planning for this transient period, where available technology and the boundary conditions are evolving rapidly, was difficult. Over the last months, Euro NCAP has reached out to key external stakeholders in the industry to discuss our first thoughts about the future safety rating and its role in promoting automation. Debating these issues face to face has helped us to identify the opportunities for vehicle safety improvement and better understand the challenges that the automotive industry is facing.

Euro NCAP wishes to express its sincere gratitude to all who participated in the consultation meetings and who have provided the very valuable feedback and suggestions.
