YFAI presents an instrument panel manufactured entirely using the CHyM process for the first time at the IAA 2017.

The instrument panel is based on a lightweight support structure which replaces the plastic substrate with a natural fiber mat, lowering the weight of the support structure alone up to 20 percent.

CHyM (compression hybrid molding) technology can reduce the weight in door panels by around 40 percent.

Yanfeng Automotive Interiors has developed a technology that makes visible natural fibers an attractive choice: Customized or tasteful decorative surfaces of visible natural fibers for door panels that offer a great deal of flexibility in the design process.

A lightweight interior solution with visible natural fibers that create a green, eco-friendly look and feel in the interior that enhances the consumer experience and provides vehicle differentiation.

The new concept "eXperience in Motion" (XiM18) from Yanfeng Automotive Interiors shows in various driving modes how interior functionality inside the vehicle will fundamentally change.
