On February 29, the North American Innovation Department of Antolin announced NEXUS, a revolutionary proposition for inner door panels that pushes the boundaries of door complexity reduction.
This door panel concept has developed in the U.S. with a global approach to meet the requirements of any client around the world.
NEXUS is based on one core carrier in which, via a plug and play scheme, several functionalities and finishes can be executed to ease the customization as well as the recyclability process during all the phases of the product life cycle.
With key partners Walter Pack (smart surfaces) and PersiSKIN (vegetal skin for interior trim), Antolin wants to evolve the solutions comprised in the door panel from sustainable materials (natural, recycled or recyclable) to valuable technologies (enhancing user experience).
The four visions offered by NEXUS are suitable for any kind of mobility and driving modes:
• E-sential Line, where affordability meets quality
• Premium Line, for upgrading the mobility experience
• Car Sharing, creating an own space
• Self-Driving, comfort on board
NEXUS features a new visual and tactile interface and an active mirroring thanks to a smart decorative surface.
The NEXUS carrier is made up with a high recycled content polymer, while the door also includes monomaterial parts and natural or bio-sourcing coverings.
