Preh Center Console Concept.jpg

Preh's center console is made using black-panel display technology, allowing function icons to appear after the ignition is turned on. A slight pressure on the start button illuminates the controls. A silver button uses PVD translucent technology, with black panel effect transferred to metallic surfaces. The button is coated with a metal surface of a few nanometers thickness. The metal surface only reveals the function symbol after the ignition switch is on. Other features include a new gear shifter design, master control knob with haptic user guidance, dual-zone climate control with a single control knob for driver and front-seat passenger, and integrated touchpad for navigation and telephone.
