Indian Passenger Car Market

Indian Passenger Car Market is set for a shake up with government regulations. Indian government is making a move to introduce stringent safety norms under which all new cars will have to undergo mandatory crash tests from October 2017. New minimum safety norms, including frontal and side crash tests, will apply to all cars — entry level, small and cheaper models. As per the new order, cars would be tested for frontal crash norms at 56 kmph, while for the side crash test, it will be at 50 kmph,”

It may be noted, the Automotive Research Association of India has developed a comprehensive testing facility at Chakan, near Pune, to crash test the new vehicles. The facility offers a range of crash tests like full-frontal impact, side impact and offset-frontal impact etc. From now on, all these tests can be carried out under one roof for the first time in India.
