Cumulative sales of Subaru’s EyeSight-equipped models top 300,000 in Japan; 85% of sales in Japan for FY2014
Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd. (FHI), the manufacturer of Subaru automobiles, announced that cumulative sales of Subaru models equipped with the EyeSight advanced driver assist system (earlier post) surpassed 300,000 units (308,333 units) in Japan at the end of March 2015.
EyeSight’s pre-collision braking control works to avoid or limit frontal impact by detecting other vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists and slowing or stopping the car when necessary. Its another key feature, the adaptive cruise control, not only maintains a set distance behind the vehicle in front.
EyeSight, the first system solely to use stereo camera technology to offer those driver assist features, first launched in May 2008, and EyeSight-equipped models accounted for 85% of sales in Japan for fiscal year 2014 (ended 31 March 2015).
