It’s not enough for a car to be safe and good to drive – we want to feel at home in it as well. For this reason, the interior is one of the most important elements in vehicle design. Here, other requirements are made based on the interplay between textures, shapes and colors.
The center console is located between the two front seats and contains various comfort and control elements. Depending on the model, it can range from a relatively simple storage compartment, to a complex assembly which can include an armrest, ambient lighting, USB connections and keyless entry antenna.
Depending on the specific model, up to 150 different individual components are installed in a cockpit module. Alongside the individual design elements such as colour, this includes sensitive surfaces and electronics for the radio and navigation system in particular. For this reason, a great deal of care is required during assembly with a view to component handling and installation – coupled with a high degree of sensitivity.
As a module specialist, we have decades of experience in the integration of a wide range of different components. Here, we can offer the same depths of services as in the front-end module business – from development through design and assembly to logistics.
Since both the centre console and the cockpit are assembled and delivered by HBPO to order, our plants are located near our customers, guaranteeing precise just-in-sequence deliveries.
