New EU legislation requires autonomous braking system by 2014

See link above.

Obviously any new Twizy then would have to have this technology in it which may affect size/price etc.

This will be interesting as the Twizy doesn’t currently have any assisted braking. Not much to the system.

The article was a bit confusing as it talked about a 5 star rating couldn’t be obtained without it. The Twizy isn’t rated now. Does this mean it will not be fitted to new ones?

Overall I think it is a good idea.

would this apply as the Twizy isnt a car

According to that link, it’s only to get the 5 star NCAP crash rating, so not mandatory on every car.

This happened with ESP previously-old NCAP allowed 5* without ESP, then only with ESP.

The Twizy would not be affected.
