Thatcham launches new website

Consumers can now get a new level of insight into vehicle safety thanks to an upgraded online search function from Thatcham.

The vehicle safety, security and repair specialist has released an improved version of the ‘My Vehicle' tool as part of a full website overhaul for www.thatcham.org. Searchable vehicle safety information on the system includes insurance grouping, Autonomous Emergency Braking fitment, whiplash safety and the security ratings.

Thatcham’s head of IT, Daniel Payne, said: "The website update is a major step forward in bringing Thatcham's online presence up to date, allowing us to deliver a range of exciting, new online features. The ‘My Vehicle' application gives people the ability to find out in-depth information about the safety of either their own car, or one they are looking to buy. With these details users will be able to make a more informed choice on something which can ultimately affect the safety of them and their whole family."

Other new functions include an "Insights, Papers and Research" area where repairers and insurance engineers can stay abreast of technical manufacturing developments on new vehicles and view in-depth reports on the automotive issues of the day.
