Lotus participated in the US DVN Workshop in august, and made a really nice presentation. It was the first time for DVN to welcome their lighting group on the stage. In reciprocity, we visited their office in Raunheim to talk with their lighting team about lotus lighting technology and interview Frank Langkabel, their exterior lighting technical lead.
Driving Vision News: Frank, tell us about your company.
Frank Langkabel: Lotus is now part of the Geely group who has a large portfolio of brands. Lotus is at the top of the pyramid when we talk about luxury and sport.
DVN: For me, Lotus is an English car maker, but you are located in Germany.
F.L.: Lotus has different locations for R&D, design and manufacturing. If we focus on R&D, it is split between the UK, Germany, and China.
