Hyundai Mobis tests roof airbag


Hyundai Mobis’ roof airbag has been evaluated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The roof airbag is deployed under the surface side of the vehicle in a rollover accident, covering the roof in 0.08 seconds to prevent passengers being ejected through the sunroof.

The NHTSA is conducting a safety evaluation of the roof airbag.

The government agency gave a presentation in January on the ‘Status of NHTSA’s Roof Ejection Mitigation Research’, at the 2020 SAE Government/Industry Meeting hosted by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), disclosing the results of the roof airbag.
