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 or as standard). 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.
