After debuting in Renault’s Mégane E-Tech Electric, the LG electronics OLED for the infotainment system is now a central feature on the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS EV. It’s yet another score for the electronics giant, having its dual-stack OLED display as the most preferred choice for in-car infotainment systems.
That’s not all. The South Korean electronics company also announced that its newest infotainment system will be available in the EQS electric sedan as a complete package through a press release.
The EQS performance sedan features an innovative pillar-to-pillar display (P2P) built into the MBUX Hyperscreen, stretching across the entire width of the dashboard.
First introduced by Mercedes at the 2021 CES, the MBUX Hyperscreen consists of three displays, including an LED screen for the instrument cluster, OLED displays, Co-Driver Display, and the Central Information Display. They are all fitted under a bonded glass cover to look and feel like a single continuous display.
LG used a P-OLED (OLED) ideally built on polyimide circuit boards that roll up or bend. The South Korean electronics’ advanced P-OLED technology enables the infotainment system to project sharper text and images and slim bezels without physical knobs but an intuitive touch interface.
LG explicitly designed the IVI infotainment system to meet the needs of the German automaker diving in the electric vehicle space. The curved, panoramic form factor was a requirement for the ultra-sleek EV sedan.
Eun Seok-Hyun, LG Vehicle components Solutions Company, said it was a privilege to work with Mercedes-Benz AG. “Being named a valued supplier of automotive displays by Mercedes-Benz AG last year gives us immense pride in knowing the partnership is showing great results,” he added.
The most advanced technology implemented in the display system is the Curved Display Bonding, Curved Glass Forming, and Surface Treatment, all developed by LG’s in-house Production Engineering Research Institute.
More automobiles in the future are likely to approach LG as the company’s Vehicle component Solutions Company continues to make partnerships with automotive manufactures globally.
