The Faurecia-equipped C4 Picasso is one of the new European leaders in the minivan segment
The brand with the chevron badge has once more demonstrated its confidence in Faurecia’s expertise, selecting the Group to produce a number of different parts:
- Assembly of front seat structures, seat reclining mechanisms, height adjuster & seat tracks – all 3 contribute to the enhanced modularity of the vehicle interior – armrests, seat foam and covers, as well as the Seat Belt Reminder safety system.
- The instrument panel, center console and certain acoustic parts. The instrument panel is manufactured using Faurecia's in-mold pigmentation technology, which is used to create a two-tone slush skin with a very stylish two-color line separating the two colors. Faurecia can also embellish one of the two colors using a sparkle effect achieved by adding metallic particles.
- The hot and cold ends of the exhaust system and a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) converter built into the exhaust system, which is effective in treating NOx (-90%) and reducing CO2 emissions through induced engine performance improvement.
PSA Peugeot-Citroën recognized several of Faurecia's solutions for the C4 Picasso at its Supplier Innovation Awards, including the lightweight seat frame and integrated calf support (Lounge Pack version), the Slush in Mold Pigmentation technology used to produce the instrument panel, and the SCR converter.
