GM – Holden's Contributions to the NRSPP & Points of Contact

  • Steve CurtisManager Product Investigations

    Who are GM Holden?

    As a global automotive manufacturer, we assign the highest priority to matters that impact our customers’ well-being and quality of life. As a result, General Motors is driven to maintain the highest quality standards. Quality and safety are part of our very foundation. Safety is something we will never compromise.

    What does road safety mean to GM Holden?

    GM Holden has a long history of safety firsts – we were the first Australian manufacturer to fit seat belts on all models, the first to introduce an energy-absorbing steering system, the first to offer independent rear suspension on a large car and to utilise supercomputer technology for multiple scenario crash simulation and injury risk measurement.

    Today, every Holden is developed with the paramount objective of providing the highest possible level of driving safety and injury protection.

    Our safety priorities are guided by analysis of the real-world driving experience and involvement in programs that aim to improve road safety and to ensure we are continually improving the safety of all our vehicles.

    With our strong understanding of injury risk we are able to successfully develop strategies that can reduce it.  It is this philosophy that guides our safety policies and advanced research and allows us to continue to implement future product safety systems.

    What are GM Holden’s NRSPP road safety commitments?

    1. Provide technical input on existing and future vehicle safety technologies.
    2. Provide useful and relevant input to NRSPP from a vehicle manufacturers perspective
