Lighting Highlights at Shanghai
Monday, 22 May 2017

Over the past ten years, China has emerged as the world's biggest auto maket—and along with that has come increasing homegrown skill and talent. The Shanghai Motor Show presents the Chinese public with an opportunity to see the latest and greatest offerings from around the world, including right there at home. Here are some of the main takeaway points we noticed at this year's show:

Beautiful DRL integration and thin headlamps. Headlamps are migrating toward slimmer designs with sculptured lenses, beautiful chrome reflectors that divide lamps into interesting segments, and lots of jeweled elements that make the headlamp visually interesting to look at. floating DRLs are a common theme, implemented in numerous different ways.

Almost every electric vehicle on display had accent lighting prominently splashed across the full front of the car. Without a combustion engine's cooling system to cater for, the air intake grille becomes unnecessary, so providing a new canvas for designers to place light.
