What impact will e-mobility have on vehicle design of the future? And what role does the light play? Using a model of the ID.3, Bischoff addressed these and other questions about lighting design.
“Volkswagen is undergoing a transformation leading to sustainable e-mobility. And light plays a key role,” says Bischoff. “Light is very important to us as vehicle designers. It creates the most emotional element of the design. But light is more than that. It is also deeply interactive. E-mobility is much more digital, more communicative. Light becomes a messenger. The ID.3 headlights not only make the environment brighter, they show that the ID. is electric. This is made apparent by the light signature across the entire front of the vehicle.”
