As we look to a greener future the vehicle fleet on our roads will be a mix of internal combustion, electric and alternate fuel vehicles all designed for different purposes. When it comes to safety one size does not fit all. Some vehicles will be mass market aiming to meet the latest consumer tests with advanced driver assistance systems. Some sportier models will want to maximise driver control and not use so much assitance and light commercial vehicles will aim to be cost effective and efficient working tools.

We need to be flexible in our target setting and development plans helping our customers to develop products which are profitable and fit for purpose.
