Floor console’s role in redefining in-vehicle experience

Technology Trends

Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are adding new features such as wireless smartphone charging and rear heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system in floor console to make it more useful for the driver and other passengers in vehicles.

The floor consoles, also called the center console in some markets, is the area in a vehicle’s cabin that generally separates the driver’s seat with the front passenger’s seat. In many vehicles, the floor console appears to be connected to the center of the instrument panel. In other vehicles, there is some gap between the floor console and the instrument panel. Automakers generally do not offer floor consoles in light commercial vehicles (LCVs).
