Designers at Volvo have built a concept car designed by women to appeal especially to female drivers. Currently called simply YCC (for "Your Concept Car"), the car features low-to-no maintenance, dirt resistant paint jobs, no fuel caps and added storage. Also included are vertical passenger doors and headrests with an indendation to accommodate pony tails.

The YCC prototype made its debut this week at the Geneva Auto Show. Lena Ekelund, the technical manager for the car at Volvo, speaks to NPR's Scott Simon from Switzerland.
