First Middle AirBag! And it’s from GM!

So we all should know at this point that the Chevrolet Cruze, the Chevy Sonic, and many of the other models are packed with 10 airbags!  It is hard to imagine fitting any more in some of those vehicles, but it looks like in 2013, some of GM’s vehicles will be getting outfitted with one more.  The Chevrolet Traverse is one of the selected vehicles to get the middle airbag with many more models to follow!

GM says that the company’s analysis of National Highway Traffic Safety Administration data revealed that far-side impact crashes accounted for 11 percent of the belted front occupant fatalities in non-rollover incidents between 2004 and 2009, and that those deaths represented 29 percent of all fatalities in all side-impact crashes.

With that information, GM took 3 years and developed the side airbag.
