Volvo VESC, the Volvo Experimental Safety Car, was an ESV concept car built by Volvo in 1972. Its design emphasized car safety, and many of the ideas (especially the front) would later appear on the Volvo 240.
With safety features such as crumple zones, rollover protection, a "disappearing" steering wheel, anti-lock braking system, automatic seat belts, airbags, pop-up head restraints, interior trim and reversing, or backup camera, the VESC attracted enormous attention.
