Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System (AVAS)
Let pedestrians know you’re there
Active Stability Control (ASC)
Advanced Airbag System (SRS)
Protection for everyone in the car
ABS with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD)
A brake system for the brake system
Our Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) prevents the wheels locking after braking. As well as ABS, the i-MiEV has Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD). This automatically adjusts the braking based on the car’s speed and load weight to ensure you can stop more quickly and safely.
RISE (Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution) Body
Designed to protect you
The i-MiEV is built using our advanced Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution body. It strategically places reinforcements at critical points to help route and absorb energy in the event of a high impact collision. So you and your passengers are kept safe when you need it most.
Brake Assist System
Extra braking power if it’s needed
The Brake Assist System is there to help drivers in an emergency stop situation. It provides extra braking force if the brake pedal is depressed suddenly.
High Voltage Control System
Two levels of battery protection
The High Voltage Control System shuts down the battery’s high-voltage circuitry if any leakage or failure is detected. For an additional layer of battery protection (for example in a severe collision where the High Voltage Control System itself is damaged) a G-force sensor will shut the battery down.
- The control capabilities of ASC/TCL are supplemental only. Please drive safely and never rely solely on these functions while driving. Be sure to use the same specified type and size of tyres on all 4 wheels. Do not install any aftermarket limited slip differential on your vehicle. Please see the owner’s manual for additional information
- Airbags are part of a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS). To decrease the risk of injury from a deploying airbag, always wear your seat belt, sit upright in the middle of the seat and do not lean against the door. Always place children 12 and under in the rear seat and use appropriate child restraints. Never place a rear-facing infant restraint in the front seat. Please see the owner’s manual and the instructions provided with your child restraint for additional information.
