Faurecia Automotive Seating has developed a front seat backrest made from composite materials, eliminating the need for traditional structures and materials.
This new generation of composite seatback is very light; it weighs nearly 20% less than conventional seatbacks and consequently reduces CO2 emissions by 10 kg over the lifespan of the vehicle.
These composite seatbacks are also 15% slimmer than existing models, opening up some 10 liters of additional interior volume. This extra space provides additional leg room for rear passengers while shortening the vehicle’s length and thereby reducing its weight.
Manufactured using thermoplastic injection, these seatbacks offer expanded stylistic freedom without compromising on passenger safety.
