Bosch Produces 75 Million ESP Systems

Bosch has announced it has manufactured its 75 millionth Electronic Stability Program, the system on which many car manufacturers base their own stability management programs on.

Producing the systems since 1995, when ESP started to be introduced to more basic, family cars, the United Nations says that ESP can prevent 80% of all skidding accidents.

Gerhard Steiger, president of the Bosch Chassis Systems Control division, says: “After the seat belt, ESP is the most important safety system in cars, and has saved many lives over the past years.”

Estimations provided by Bosch indicate that the ESP technology is worth 51.4 billion Euro to 300,000 associated businesses in more than 60 countries.
