New DS4 equipped with Faurecia technologies
Faurecia, one of the world’s leading automotive technology companies, shared today that the new DS4 features its breakthrough solutions for discreet ventilation and thermal management, alongside other technologies from its Interiors, Seating and Clean Mobility Business Groups.
The luxury SUV is equipped with Faurecia’s SmartVent ® solution for ventilation and thermal management. SmartVent ®, which builds on the groundbreaking DecoVent ® technology, radically alters the appearance of the dashboard by redesigning the internal structure of the ventilation system, without sacrificing performance.
Reducing the appearance of mechanical elements such as air vents, which have changed little since their inception, gives OEMs greater freedom in design and systems integration. The SmartVent ®, activated through intuitive HMI systems, is designed to open up space behind the dashboard in which OEMs are free to integrate electronic hardware and enhance the solutions available to vehicle occupants.
With its disruptive structure that opens new possibilities for carmakers, Faurecia’s ventilation solutions have set a technical and aesthetic standard in automotive design. We are proud to share our first business award for SmartVent ®, and look forward to seeing our product on the road in the new DS4.
Faurecia Interiors will also provide various internal components of the new DS4, including the instrument panel (made from the sustainable NAFILean ® biocomposite) and the door panels.
Faurecia Seating will equip the new DS4 with the seat foams, headrests, the back seat’s frame, and integrated ventilation. Faurecia will also supply aftertreatment and acoustic solutions through its Clean Mobility Business Group.
