Report on the Changing Mood in Automotive Internal Lighting

Report on the Changing Mood in Automotive Internal Lighting

The interior lighting can be customised, with different colours assigned to different driving modes. In park mode, the model even offers a ‘car show’ mode, whereby changing colours flow outwards from the instrument panel to the rest of the interior. With advances in technologies such as ADAS, and the potential of self-driving cars, interior lighting design is set to become increasingly important, from both a mood and an entertainment perspective.
