Body Designed to Reduce Pedestrian Injury

Body structure that reduces the impact to pedestrians in the event of a collision.

The safe structure is employed in the front deck and bonnet hood, etc. and reduces pedestrian injuries in the event of a collision.

Body Designed to Reduce Pedestrian Injury

Example of the Technology Adopted in the RVR

Example of the Technology Adopted in the RVR1

RVR reduces the impact to pedestrians in the event of a collision by adoption an open-cross-section structure in the windshield supporting section of the front deck, which is reduced its rigidity (1 in the figure), and by adoption a plastic fender (2 in the figure).

Example of the Technology Adopted in the RVR2

In the RVR, we removed the panel indicated by the blue line to change the windshield supporting frame that was hard like a closed box in a conventional structure (the red line + the blue line) to a structure that is flexible and easily collapses when it is impacted (the red line only).
