AIXAM, N°1 for licence-free cars and safety

Safety
1 Well protected

4 wheels are twice as good as 2. Two times more stable, an aluminium chassis and thermoformed bodywork to absorbe minor impacts and better protect the occupants.

2 Drive easy

The entire AIXAM range is equipped with an automatic gear box (drive and reverse) and 2 pedals (accelerator and brake)

3 See clearly

The generous front and rear windshields and windows offer exceptional panoramic vision and the large wing mirrors reduce blind spots. Automobile headlamps with dipped-beam and main beam headlights and front fog lamps ensure great visibility whatever the weather, both day and night.

4 Be seen

LED daytime running lights, third brake light, indicator lights integrated into wing mirrors to better signal changes in direction... Equipment that ensures that you are easily seen in the traffic.

5 Buckle up

The 3-point safety belts secure the occupants during a collision and protect them by reducing the force of the impact. 

6 Hold the road

The 4 independent wheels guarantee optimum road-holding. Only AIXAM equips its vehicles with a brake limiter for better stability and handling. The cross-action breaking system ensures the best stability on the market and requires less effort on the pedal.

7 In control

AIXAM is the only no-licence car manufacturer to offer an ABS option*. In tha case of emergency braking, the ABS pevents the wheels from blocking. The trajectories are controlled and the risk of skidding is reduced, whatever the weather conditions.

8 Warm inside

Windshield, windscreen wipers, heating, defrosting, air-conditioning all contribute to occupants' comfort and enable the driver to concentrate on the job in hand for trouble-free driving.

9 Stay connected

The touchscreen tablets with Bluetooth connection ensure that manoeuvres are simple and safe thanks to the reversing camera. Listen to music, telephone hands-free, obtain intineraries... all the while staying concentrated on your driving.

10 Drive responsibly

Ease yourself into driving gently - because no-licence cars are limited to 45km/h - and familiarise yourself with road traffic safety so that you are better prepared for passing your driving test.

   ACTIVE SAFETY MEASURES

It is the combination of innovation and equipment that helps avoid accidents:
  • Wide windscreen to enlarge the field of vision
  • Powerful defrosting system for perfect visibility
  • Halogen headlamps, 3rd brake light, hazard lights triggered when emergency breaking, LED daytime running lights... equipment to help be easily seen by others in all conditions
  • Lowered centre of gravity, wider tracks and brake control valve... These details contribute to your stability during manoeuvres.

PASSIVE SAFETY MEASURES

All of the technologies used within the vehicle maximise preservation and protection of the occupants during a potential impact.

28th YEAR OF SUCCESSFUL CRASH-TESTS

The AIXAM licence-free car conforms to the latest applicable norms and standards in the European Union.

Analysis of these successful tests assists the safety developments for all AIXAM models.

HOW IS A CRASH TEST DEEMED SUCCESSFUL?

  • Passenger compartment intact with no notable deformation: no intrusion, no injuries, you are not stuck inside your vehicle.
  • The windows are not broken: no cuts, no injuries.
  • The seat belts are designed not to jam:
    no discomfort, no panic when exiting the vehicle.
  • The doors do not open during an accident: no ejection.
  • The door handles work correctly: the doors open easily when exiting the vehicle.

AIXAM has attained an exceptional safely level for its range.

ABS, the driving force behind the AIXAM brand

The range is equipped with ABS (optional). This anti-lock braking system facility optimises breaking distance and allows optimal trajectory control in order to avoid obstacles when breaking.

It works on all ground types and in all weather conditions.
