Ford’s world-first knee airbag in new Mustang


Ford has developed a new innovative knee airbag design for its new 2015 Mustang, becoming the first automaker to integrate an airbag within the glove box lid, instead of the instrument panel, to replace a separate knee airbag. The design also provides more room for front seat passengers.

Rather than a textile fabric airbag, the technology consists of an innovative moulded plastic design, sandwiched between the outer and inner glove box lid surfaces.
