Volvo SCC was launched at the 2001 Detroit Auto Show. It was the ESV concept car that was first shown at the North American International Car Show, Michigan. The Safety Concept Car combines the rear door design of the Volvo P1800ES and the glass doors of the Volvo 480ES.
This vehicle is built with aesthetic appearance and lines that pleases the eye, but more because the car has been designed around the driver’s eyes to ensure better vision and visibility.
Has an interior design almost similar to the S40 and V50 with the instrument panel, the middle stack is ‘floating’ and the steering wheel is shared by all three cars. The door is open by means of a conventional door front and behind a small sliding door. When the driver enters the seat, a sensor identifies the location of his eyes. The chair then automatically adjusts to fit the eye’s position so that the driver gets the best field of vision. After this is complete, the floor, pedals, steering wheel and center console include the gear lever all moving to ensure that all controls are within comfortable range.
Volvo SCC is the only car that has crossed seat belts. In addition, it has a number of additional functions that increase visibility.
