Magna Advances Automotive Design with Innovative Surface Element Lighting Technology

On June 7, Magna opened up more possibilities for automotive designers with its innovative Surface Element Lighting technology. The technology will come in a compact package, providing a consistent look and a customizable, affordable LED lighting option for the exterior of the vehicle. According to official news, this technology will first be applied to Volkswagen’s 2021 pure electric ID.4.

  

John O’Hara, president of Magna Mechatronics, Mirrors, Lighting and Magna Electronics, said: “Automotive designers are always looking for new ways to differentiate, and lighting is a way to demonstrate creativity and brand identity. This is a way. Surface Element Lighting has similar uniformity to OLED at a lower cost, bringing a major change in design and customization.”

With a minimum thickness of just 4mm, the technology’s single compact LED panels can be packaged in tight spaces and placed in extremely close configurations. The surrounding frame of the lighting element can be adjusted to create a unique 3D template, which in turn allows for more freedom of styling.

The technology’s lighting animations are customizable and can be created in individual elements or groups, including: lock/unlock, greeting/goodbye, charging indicator, start and turn signal indicators. Additionally, designers can offer consumers a choice of different pre-programmed lighting animations for a higher level of personalization.
