Toyota has developed the world's first rear seat centre airbag to help reduce the severity of passenger injuries in side-on collisions.

The new Supplemental Restraint System airbag is fitted in a large, fixed, rear-seat centre console.

It will feature in a Toyota model to be released in the near future.

When the vehicle is hit side-on, the airbag deploys from the top of the console to act as a barrier that helps lessen injuries caused by passengers colliding with each other or into the console.

Toyota continues to develop and make available its safety technologies to enable its vehicles to better respond to a wider range of accidents.

In the future, Toyota intends to strengthen its traffic safety initiatives further by developing even safer vehicles and technologies, participating in the provision of safe traffic environments and by implementing traffic safety education.

Toyota is committed to the elimination of traffic casualties as part of its efforts to achieve sustainable mobility.
