Animating Volvo’s Drive for Car Safety Equality

A stripped down CG treatment by Goodbye Kansas surgically edited to the sparse dynamic’s of a track by UK producer Lapalux provides plenty of visceral punch in this spot for Volvo’s E.V.A. car safety equality initiative.

Art director Sophia Lindholm at agency Forsman & Bodenfors: “Women are more likely to get injured in a car crash. Partly because male crash test dummies are the standard. As a result, most cars are safer for men.

“Volvo Cars’ Accident Research Team has compiled real-world crash data since the 1970s – regardless of size, gender, or body shape. This has made it possible for Volvo to design its cars in a way that protects both men and women equally.

“Volvo Cars is for the first time making its safety knowledge easily accessible in a central digital library which it urges the car industry to use, in the interest of safer roads for all.”
