LG has scored another electric vehicle win after making its durable dual-stack OLED displays the preferred choice for in-car infotainment systems. Not only will LG be providing the flexible OLED panel for the unique Mercedes EQS pillar-to-pillar Hyperscreen, but it also announced that its new infotainment system will be present in the EQS electric performance sedan as a full package.

As the leader in large and mid-size OLED display production, LG made its mark in the red-hot automotive displays market by offering a unique dual-stack OLED technology with at least a 10-year lifespan that solves the issue of blue diodes deterioration with time. Moreover, the flexible OLED technology (a plastic instead of a glass substrate) that LG uses in conjunction with the dual-stack method allows for some innovative takes on the good ol' infotainment system. Nowhere is that more visible than in the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS electric performance sedan whose display is rightfully called the Hyperscreen. Stretching from one pillar to the other in the vehicles, it flows and shapes with the design of the dashboard looking as seamlessly integrated as they come.

Mercedes-Benz unveiled its MBUX Hyperscreen concept at the CES 2020 expo and it is now ready to shine in commercially available electric vehicles. The MBUX consists of several elements like an Instrument Cluster Display (ICD) LCD panel, and two flexible OLED displays towards both ends - a Central Information Display (CID) and Co-Driver Display (CDD) - with all panels bonded under a single cover glass to become one whole Hyperscreen. Not only will LG be providing the OLED panels for the unique Mercedes EQS pillar-to-pillar Hyperscreen, but, after debuting in the Renault Mégane E-Tech Electric, the luxury EV will also land LG's new premium in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) system software to go along for the ride:

Working closely together, LG and Mercedes-Benz AG engineers are taking in-vehicle displays such as instrument panels and navigation systems to a new level, providing drivers and passengers with greater convenience and control of their on-road experience. The visually-pleasing IVI system in the Mercedes-Benz EQS EV not only raises the bar for ease-of-use but also safety, featuring new technologies that perform well above minimum standards for head-on and collisions.

SEOUL, Jan. 12, 2022 — LG Electronics’ (LG) newest premium in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) system will be a central feature in the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS EV sedan, the Pillar to Pillar (P2P) display built into the MBUX Hyperscreen that stretches across the entire width of the dashboard. With its unique interior concept and revolutionary human-machine interface, the first luxury electric vehicle from Mercedes-Benz AG highlights the futuristic trends in electric vehicle design and points to an exciting vision for future mobility.

First introduced by Mercedes-Benz at AG CES 2021, the MBUX Hyperscreen consists of three screens including LCD display, ICD (Instrument Cluster Display) and two OLED displays, CID (Central Information Display) and CDD (Co-Driver Display) under a bonded glass cover to give the appearance of a single, continuous display. The use of advanced plastic OLED (P-OLED) display technology enables the infotainment system in the Mercedes-Benz EQS EV to deliver clear, sharp images and text and slim bezels with no physical knobs means occupants get an intuitive touch interface with refined haptics for a user experience (UX) with minimal learning curve.

LG’s IVI system was specifically designed to meet the needs of Mercedes-Benz AG with the curved, panoramic form factor required by the ultra-sleek sedan. LG’s in-house Production Engineering Research Institute, tasked with providing in-house expertise for equipment and material components as well as advanced production techniques, developed the core technologies implemented in the display: Curved Glass Forming, Surface Treatment and Curved Display Bonding.

Working closely together, LG and Mercedes-Benz AG engineers are taking in-vehicle displays such as instrument panels and navigation systems to a new level, providing drivers and passengers with greater convenience and control of their on-road experience. The visually-pleasing IVI system in the Mercedes-Benz EQS EV not only raises the bar for ease-of-use but also safety, featuring new technologies that perform well above minimum standards for head-on and collisions.

“It’s an honor and a privilege to be able to work in close collaboration with a trusted partner such as Mercedes-Benz AG,” said Eun Seok-hyun, president of the LG Vehicle component Solutions Company. “Being named a valued supplier of automotive displays by Mercedes-Benz AG last year gives us immense pride in knowing that the partnership is showing great results.”

As an innovative partner for future mobility, LG Electronics’ Vehicle component Solutions (VS) Company is working with global automakers such as Mercedes-Benz AG to become a leading developer of connectivity, infotainment and ADAS solutions to deliver differentiated in-vehicle experiences. LG is committed to diversifying its portfolio to further strengthen its capabilities with acquisitions including automotive lighting and headlight systems provider ZKW Group and software cybersecurity company Cybellum as well as the joint venture, LG-Magna e-Powertrain.
