The final CCC Trends of 2020 is here, ending on a positive note with a progress report for vehicles with Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS). While COVID-19 profoundly impacted the auto industry this year, we have seen progression in vehicle technology and correlations with repairs.
Vehicles equipped with Automatic Emergency Breaking (AEB) has grown 74% since 2016, and made up 25% of claims for CY2020. Nearly three-fourths of all vehicles of curb weight 8500 pounds or less produced and sold in the U.S. between September 1, 2019 and August 31, 2020 included automatic emergency braking (AEB) and frontal crash warning (FCW).1 This was the fourth progress report from the twenty automakers that originally signed up for the Commitment to Advancing Automatic Emergency Braking, and shows the automakers are close to reaching the 100 percent goal well before the target date of September 1, 2022.
