First car with standard fitted three-point safety belt

Originally shared by Joe Bodego

Aug 13 1959 Production of first car with standard fitted three-point safety belt

The first car to be produced with a standard fitted three-point safety belt rolled off the Volvo production lines in Sweden, on August 13th 1959.

The three-point safety belt was invented by the Swedish engineer Nils Bohlin (1920-2002) who was employed at the time as Volvo’s first ever safety engineer.

The history of the safety belt dates back to the 19th century, but Bohlin was the first to design a three-point safety belt that fastened by the occupant’s hip rather than over the abdomen.
