Electric vehicles, increasingly, are not just repowered versions of regular cars. Interiors in EVs don’t have to be built around the packaging requirements of a combustion-engine powertrain technology, and automakers are learning to leverage that new freedom to provide space and innovative configurations responsive to today’s needs and wants. We look at these phenomena in this week’s in-depth, with a focus on premium EV Interiors.
In parallel, there are strong signals towards mobility services supplanting traditional car ownership. We’ve got coverage this week on what we’re seeing to that end, and what it implies for automotive interiors.
Starting next month, we’ll be reaching out directly to DVN Interior community members to better understand your needs and wants. Your responses will drive the topics and content of our forthcoming DVN-I Reports, and of our next workshop, planned for next April. Meanwhile, if you haven’t already registered for next month’s DVN and DVN-Interior Workshop near Detroit, you’ll want to do so while there’s still space for you!
