Air bags were invented in 1951 and tested over the following 20 years.
In November, 1973, the air bag was marketed as optional by GM for "several 1974 model full-size cars made by the Buick, Cadillac and Oldsmobile divisions. This system was known as the Air Cushion Restraint System". This low volume production item was later abandoned.
In 1980, Mercedes Benz reintroduced the air bag on its high end S-Class vehicle as an optional supplemental restraint system, in addition to seatbelts.
In 1987, Porsche was the first car to have both driver and passenger air bags as standard equipment.
In 1984, the US required manufaturers to implement air bags in cars produced after April 1, 1989. The NHTSA mandated dual front air bags in 1998.

No. There are federal regulations mandating that cars sold/traded in the US past a certain year must have seat belts and airbags. If you were sold a car(1993ish or higher) and it doesn't have an airbag then chances are the vehicle was totaled and repaired. If the car was built before airbags were required by law, then the car can be sold without airbags.
GM introduced the first cars with Air Bags in 1973.GM introduced the first cars with Air Bags in 1973.
Ever since airbags were invented.
Most airbags became standard in the mid 1990s.
General Motors tested airbags on the 1973 model Chevrolet automobile that were only sold for government use. The 1973, Oldsmobile Toronado was the first car with a passenger air bag intended for sale to the public.
it depends on the year. if it does then you will find the letters SRS or AIRBAG on the panels where the airbags are Yes it has 4 airbags.
