Rear window airbag

Following on yesterday’s post on small cars, we are posting today’s news on a micro car invention: the rear window airbag:

Toyota has developed a new rear window airbag that will be standard equipment on its upcoming iQ micro car. There is very little space between the back seat and the rear window on small cars like the Smart and the upcoming iQ, which means there won’t be as much metal to absorb the impact of a rear collision.With Toyota’s new rear window airbag, the rear air bag is ejected from the roof lining during a fender bender. Toyota says it will help protect the heads and necks back seat passengers.
