The automotive interior will never be the same

New trends are shaping the automotive sector — namely, electrification, personalization, autonomous cars, and human-machine interfaces — taking drivers and passengers on an entirely new journey. Automotive interiors are transforming, too, requiring raw materials with all-new properties.

Let’s build a completely new interior

Consumers are making their car-buying decisions based on their interiors. This means automotive designers and engineers are moonlighting as interior designers, and considering how people want to sit, feel and entertain within their car. 
To create beautiful and peaceful interiors, manufacturers face many demands and challenges. Dynamic lighting is one. It must be integrated into many parts of the car, including the floor. It must also demonstrate new capabilities — for example, adjusting based on music or mood. 
And in all applications, transparency and texture are key. Consumers don’t just want to touch the tech; they want to see it. They want large-screen, 3D and hidden-until-lit displays, advanced driver-assistance systems, and seamless multi-material surfaces with aesthetic and touchable textures. 
Covestro makes the right materials to help OEMs meet these — and many other — design and performance requirements. Standard polycarbonate and glass can no longer do the job. Covestro’s polycarbonates are inspiring the automotive interiors of tomorrow.
