Corning Gorilla Glass Helps Enable Smart, Integrated Automotive Interiors of the Future | Corning Gorilla Glass for Automotive | Corning

Smart, integrated surfaces are part of everyone’s future driving experience.

And Corning® Gorilla® Glass for Automotive helped demonstrate that future for crowds at the 2016 Paris Motor Show.

Two automotive powerhouses – Renault and auto equipment innovator Faurecia – used the tough, thin cover glass on some of the most spectacular aspects of their auto show exhibits.

Renault’s sleek Trezor is an all-electric concept car described by auto reviewers as “stunning,” “the star of Paris,” and a combination of “high technology and…natural luxury.” Gorilla Glass added significantly to that style.

The Trezor’s L-shaped dashboard is a curved, ultra high-definition display with a Gorilla Glass cover, making the perfect touch surface to connect seamlessly with the driver’s smartphone.  

The flowing curves echo the sensuous silhouette of the car’s exterior. And because Gorilla Glass is only .7 millimeters thick, it can easily bend and retain its iconic toughness.

An additional Corning innovation incorporated into the Trezor: Corning® Fibrance™ Light-Diffusing Fiber swirled into a dramatic treatment along the back-light panels.

Faurecia unpacked new technologies for tomorrow’s cars and exhibited the components individually for show-goers to experience. Multi-curved shapes and smart surfaces for the “cockpit of the future” were defining characteristics of their sleek new car console and instrument panel – both covered with Gorilla Glass.

The bright displays and superior image quality enabled by the premium cover glass perfectly accommodate what Faurecia refers to as a “digital instrument cluster display.”

An especially unique touch – stylish air vent cut-outs, which integrate comfort features while still maintaining the glistening, edge-to-edge cover glass look.

Since enabling the smartphone revolution nearly a decade ago, Gorilla Glass – tough, thin, and optically advantaged -- has become the cover glass of choice for more than 40 major consumer brands. It has been used on more than 4.5 billion devices worldwide.

More and more automotive leaders are now turning to Corning as a partner in bringing smart technologies to the connected car. Gorilla Glass brings durable, chic, fully integrated surfaces along for the ride.
