Los Angeles - Children's car seats are historically bulky, hard to move and tedious to mount - but that may be about to change.
Volvo has designed a lightweight, inflatable rearward-facing child seat concept that is says is safe, easy to pack and carry and will enable parents to use it in many situations not practical with the seats on the market today.\
Designer Lawrence Abele, head of the Volvo Monitoring and Concept Centre in Los Angeles, had his two children in mind while designing the concept seat.
“For me child safety is always the number one priority,” he said. “When we lived abroad with two toddlers we had to haul bulky child seats through airports and then into taxis.
“Travelling with young children is a challenge; anything to simplify their parents' life is great.”
