AGC Asahi Glass (AGC) has announced that its cover glass for car-mounted displays will be installed in the new Audi A8 vehicle. This will mark the world’s first ever (*) mass-produced vehicle to incorporate curved cover glass.
The cockpit of the new Audi A8 will feature two touch-screen displays that will allow vehicle occupants to display and control the information necessary for safe and comfortable driving. The company’s curved cover glass will be used for the upper display, a large and gently-curving 10.1-inch display that shows navigation and infotainment systems, while flat cover glass will be used for the lower display, a touch-screen which will be used to operate the system.
