Abstract: Automobile manufacturers have innovations up their sleeves. Car designers and manufacturers have always focused their research to provide comfort, safety and ease of driving to their vehicle users. Honda Motor Company went beyond that with its commitment to provide 'safety for everyone' that included pedestrians who shared the roads.

The increasing number of pedestrian deaths due to road accidents further reinforced its commitment. Besides enhancing its image as a company committed to its corporate social responsibility, Honda's initiative was also leveraged as a tactic to differentiate Honda from its competitors. On its anvil, Honda has the new safety technology in all its cars to comply with the stricter safety rules being implemented by Euro NCAP that would hit the market from 2006 onwards.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To analyse Honda's initiatives to make its cars safer for the pedestrians and its implication on the company's future business potential and profitability.
