Through the development of EVI and the Smart Cabin Seat, Yanfeng's experts challenged themselves to simplify the vehicle interior while keeping the functionality that users expect. The Yanfeng solution builds them back in a unique way, in an all new module that incorporates both front seats, integrated floor console, steer-by-wire input system, HMI, displays, seatbelts and airbags, in addition to a HVAC microclimate system for thermal comfort.
At CES, Yanfeng introduced a new generation of its Hover Seat with Seat Sensing Posture ID technology that adds new levels of comfort. The seat based on zero gravity research, by detecting the occupant’s body language, such as seating position, level of fatigue, and body type actively releases fatigue for passengers throughout the ride and to improve the driving experience.
The powertrains of EVs have undergone a complete transformation - but the interior has not changed substantially. Interiors of EV's have largely resembled their gas-powered counterparts, until now. Yanfeng showcases its future vehicle architecture vision.

Airbags must work perfectly all over the world – be it in Siberia or in the desert. An airbag module is exposed to all potential environmental impacts that might affect the product such as physical force, frost, sun, salt or dust. This is why Yanfeng tests the airbag modules under all climate conditions.
