Proposal for the future

Proposal for cost-reduction & sperior designability with environmental-friendly DURABIO™

  • For the future car's indoor residential space in the coming CASE era
  • For designability, functionality, comfort to appeal to the "sight" "hearing" "sense of touch" "sense of smell"
  • For high functional and large type center information display at instrument panel
  • For high functional and integrated parts(Ex. Radiator grill + Sensor ) at exterior
