Jochen notably mentioned that Covestro has more than 50 years experience in automobile collaboration and innovation, going back to the introduction of the first full plastic body concept car in 1967. Aiming to meet future needs, Covestro has developed a new concept car in collaboration with HELLA KGaA Hueck & Co.
On display at the DVN workshop, the new concept car model once again turned heads with noticeable attention from many OEM partners. Based on pioneering plastics technologies, the car‘s concepts “brings to light” how Covestro redefines automotive lighting with seamless surfaces, holographic films, body lighting and backlighting for safety, design and function. It presents vehicle designers with new possibilities for designing comfortable, functional, and energy-efficient cars that meet the demands of safety and sustainability.
Following his presentation, Jochen was interviewed by two notable members of the automotive industry media in China: Automotive Manufacturing & Design and Autolab, an auto We-Media that creates and shares analysis and trends of auto innovation on technology, materials and manufacturing. Their discussion covered automotive lighting and future cars trends and compared them to Covestro’s strategy and plan.
