Mercedes-Benz’s seatbelt airbag; The Beltbag

Mercedes-Benz is pursuing its safety initiative in the rear of vehicles with the Beltbag.

The inflatable seat-belt strap which is able to reduce the risk of injury to passengers in the rear in a head-on collision by lessening the strain placed on the ribcage is due to go into production in a luxury-class model from Mercedes-Benz.

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Rodolfo Schöneburg, Head of Passive Safety and Vehicle Functions at Mercedes-Benz Cars commented. “After all, the excellent standard of safety offered by Mercedes-Benz doesn’t just apply to all model series, but to all seats, too.”

This technology however isn’t a first from Mercedes as the Ford Explorer and Lexus LFA got seatbelt airbags in 2010.
