Hefei, China – 30 May, 2012 – Anhui Jianghuai Automobile Co. (“JAC Motors”), a leading global manufacturer of commercial and passenger vehicles, today announced its Shuailing III has successfully passed the Commercial Vehicles’ crash test, which is equal to C-NCAP (Chinese New Car Assessment Program) testing.
In 2011, the Chinese government released new national safety testing for commercial vehicles. From January 2012 onwards, only vehicles that have passed front collision, top pressure and rear panel tests may enter the market.
In April 2012, a number of Chinese manufacturers submitted light commercial vehicles to the Changchun Vehicle testing centre for evaluation and were among the first group of vehicles to be tested since the implementation of the requirements. Both the narrow and wide version of the JAC Shuailing III have passed the tests, becoming the first light commercial vehicles in China to do so.
The testing procedure requirs that the dummy used can exit and enter the vehicle, the doors can be reopened, and the cab and chassis connection are not damaged. The JAC Shuailing III passed every requirement in the front crash testing, under a maximum force of 44.1kJ (units of power). The vehicle’s chassis is constructed from high intensity steel, and its front panel utilises a dual structure design, maximising the security of the driver.
The JAC Shuailing III is also equipped with ABS and EBD as further safety measures for driving in difficult conditions, as well as safety features to ensure effective braking and collision absorption.
