View Full Version : Girl Power softens Volvo's edges

Volvo's new concept car, launched at the Geneva motor show, is a car designed by women for women.

If the Calendar Girls were making cars, this is what they would look like.

Volvo's latest offering seems to be almost more of a break with tradition than the Women's Institute members stripping off for a calendar.

The 'Your Concept Car' (YCC), on display for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show, was designed by a team of women keen to change the way most cars are designed with male drivers in mind.

Swedes being Swedes, the Volvo concept car remains eminently sensible.

Only this time, it is common sense spelt with an F for Feminine rather than Farmer.

The car should be programmed to discover any problems under the bonnet, then send a message to the garage to let them know.

The mechanics would then contact the women directly to invite them over.

this seems like a rubbish idea....I mean how can ya truly trust the mechanic.....they r so after ones money.... most of the time

detachable seat pads are available in different colours and textures to match a woman's outfit, or even the weather.

this takes the ****.....I mean who wants to change the interior of thier car all the time? unless it has reached a point of no return-disgusting.

Volvo will never actually take this car into production, of course.

SO glad to hear this. :D
