AVIVA CANADA TO OFFERS DISCOUNT FOR VEHICLES WITH AUTOMATIC EMERGENCY BRAKING

Aviva Canada announced a 15 per cent auto insurance discount for those drivers who have vehicles with Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB). The discount, which is an industry first, is available to all Aviva-insured drivers automatically to their policy when purchased or renewed.

"Automatic emergency braking is quickly becoming a key feature in preventing collisions and reducing their severity. This means less repair costs and more importantly, fewer injuries," said Jason Storah, Executive Vice-President of Broker Distribution, Aviva Canada. "It's simple – our customers who choose vehicles with features that help prevent collisions, or reduce their impact, will pay less for their insurance coverage."


The announcement was made at Toyota Canada head office in Toronto, Ontario. With demonstrations of the AEB system, which is part of Toyota Safety Sense, for those in attendance.

AEB systems automatically apply the brakes on a vehicle when a front-end collision is possible. A total of 20 automakers plan to make AEB standard on cars by no later than September 1, 2022.

"We applaud Aviva Canada for being the first Canadian auto insurer to reward drivers for adopting advanced safety features like AEB," said Stephen Beatty, Vice President, Toyota Canada Inc. "We feel that everybody deserves to benefit from advanced safety technologies and have already started including them on most models."
