The Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (FCAI) is Australia’s peak organisation for the automotive industry and represents importers of ATVs and motorcycles as well as car manufacturers and importers.

The FCAI and the industry it represents will continue to refer to All Terrain Vehicles by that (correct) name. The slang term “quad bike” has become popular in some quarters in recent years, but only because of an unfortunate confusion between “terrain”, on the one hand, and “topography”, on the other.

The ATV industry in Australia is concerned about the number of deaths and injuries associated with ATV use and has always been a willing and collaborative contributor to forums aimed at developing strategies and actions to improve safety.
