Top 95 Auto Trends in October

From Urban Mobility EVs to Improved Car Airbag Solutions

— October 3, 2019 — Autos
These October 2019 auto innovations include urban mobility EVs and improved airbag solutions like those recently announced by Japan-based manufacturer Honda. Honda's 2020 goal is to ensure its vehicles are fitted with updated airbag technology that is said to "reduce rotational velocity" or the ability for one's head to rotate by up to 75%.

When it comes to sustainable car solutions, standouts include the Fiat Panda. The accessible and compact car is due to be released in 2021 and will be available for purchase in both standard and electric car options. The vehicle is said to be representative of Fiat's brand values and dedication to improving urban mobility. This is achieved with cars that are environmentally friendly and designed to meet the needs of modern families.
