As many drivers already know, Ford is all about innovation in terms of driving pleasure, entertainment technology, and safety features. It is with this in mind that they have added another industry-first component to the 2015 Ford Mustang.
When thinking of the airbags in a car, you probably picture the traditional inflatable textile bag, right? Ford threw this idea out the proverbial window in this case, opting for an injection-moulded plastic knee airbag that has been integrated into the cubbyhole door.
This was done as part of Ford’s effort to reduce the weight of the vehicle by reducing a number of components, but the integration has had other benefits as well. The studio now has more flexibility in designing an interior that looks the way they want it to. It has also allowed for the instrument panel to be moved forward, making the interior a little more spacious and giving the front passenger more legroom.
