While speaking at the 2015 WardsAuto Interiors Conference last month in Dearborn, Michigan, Adam Bernard of General Motors addressed the auto industry’s changing perception of luxury interiors.
His comments provided insight on a trend that auto upholsterers have long noticed: Affordable cars are increasingly being manufactured with higher-quality materials – especially on the inside – blurring the line between what was once considered luxury and what is now stock.
At the WardsAuto Interiors Conference held earlier this year, industry leaders hinted that automakers may soon forgo dome lights in favor of multiple LED lamps – a possible precursor to LED-laden headliner boards like that found in the Rolls Royce Phantom.
They weren’t kidding. German automaker Opel has just introduced the first budget-priced car to feature a starlight headliner board.
If you only attend one industry event this year, make sure it’s the WardsAuto Interiors Conference. It’s the only event in North America solely dedicated to automotive interiors — which means everyone who’s anyone in the field of auto upholstery will be there ready to network, share ideas and show off their designs.
