EVs for the Elderly

In an effort to curb the increasing number of traffic accidents involving senior drivers in Japan, new types of electric vehicles are being developed with the aging population in mind.

The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry held a test-driving event showcasing new types of electric vehicles (or EVs) aimed at older drivers, as Japan’s aging society is grappling with a spike in traffic accidents involving senior citizens. The event gave around 150 people a chance to test drive small EVs that are currently being developed by carmakers.
