Volvo Car Corporation's Safety Concept Car (SCC) has been awarded "Concept Car of the Year" by the American publication, Automotive News. The award was presented to Volvo Cars CEO, Hans-Olov Olsson on January 9 at The Detroit Auto Show.


The SCC, which was designed to optimize every driver's vision and explore new concepts in active safety, was in fierce competition with several other exciting concept cars for this year's title.
