To enhance the interior of the EX90, Volvo has introduced 72 SunLike LEDs to deliver a near-sunlight experience. The LEDs, supplied by Seoul Semiconductor, deliver a more natural color expression than conventionally used LEDs and provide low light reflection and a high color index.
“By utilizing the spectrum of light emitted from the SunLike LEDs, the progressive materials and interior design of the Volvo EX90 stand out more clearly and without color distortion,” says Dan Fidgett, head of color and materials at Volvo Cars. “Complementing our wood deco and other natural materials inside the cabin, the lights are central to our Scandinavian design language.”
Already in use in other applications, the Volvo Car Group is the first to use the SunLike LEDs in production vehicles, with the technology featuring within the Polestar 3 and the Volvo EX90. All of the non-decorative lights within the EX90, including those on the ceiling, floor, and in the door cards and the hood, all come with the LEDs as standard.
“The well-being of our customers is always a main focus for interior design at Volvo Cars. Bringing in SunLike LEDs to the interior of the Volvo EX90 is another illustration of our ambition to bring in innovative technology to deliver a renewed premium in-car experience for our customers,” said Fidgett.
In addition to enhancing the interior aesthetics, the SunLike lights also deliver natural comfort to occupants by suppressing blue-light and eliminating flickering light, helping to reduce eyestrain and headaches.
