A safety warning for Instagram users

Published

A recent study suggests that EVs and hybrids are more likely to be involved in pedestrian collisions compared to traditional internal combustion engine vehicles.

One possible explanation for this phenomenon is the quieter operation of electric vehicles at lower speeds, which can catch pedestrians off guard, particularly those who are visually impaired or distracted.

To counter this issue, all new EVs in Australia will be outfitted with AVAS – an audible alert to pedestrians to indicate a EV is headed in their direction.
