Volvo has designed a light and inflatable rearward-facing child seat concept. What's more, the company is celebrating 50 years of child safety.

Over the course of 50 years Volvo's Torslanda factory has produced more than 6.8-million cars for delivery around the world - many of them here in South Africa.

Models such as the Amazon, P1800 and 240 have become a part of Sweden's cultural heritage; the Volvo XC90 and Volvo S60 are set to do the same.
