Webasto Panorama Roof Honored Again

Ambient lighting impresses judges of the 2017 Plus X Award in the categories innovation, high quality and design

Stockdorf/Munich – February 24, 2017 – The Webasto panorama roof with ambient lighting was honored with the 2017 Plus X Award and has thus earned distinction once again. The jury composed of trade journalists and personalities from 26 industries distinguished the roof system in as many as three categories: innovation, high quality and design. Last year, the roof system with the ingenious light graphics had already won the 2016 BMW Supplier Innovation Award in the category Emotional Experience.

“We are more than delighted with the Plus X Award. It underscores just how much added value our products have to offer: new technologies with the highest quality combined with striking design,” was how Dr. Holger Engelmann, Chairman of the Management Board, Webasto SE commented this win. In the dark, the panorama roof with the ambient lighting creates a pleasant atmosphere in the interior of the vehicle, and thereby contributes to a positive ride feeling. “Our worldwide development teams are working on additional interesting product features. This way we ensure that our roof systems will continue to provide for special riding and driving experiences in the future, for instance, during autonomous driving,” Engelmann further elaborates.

Technically, the ambient lighting is executed by laterally feeding in light which radiates through an imprinted graphic design. At the same time, the generous and open sense of space is completely retained, since the transparency of the glass element has been retained. The premium class roof system meets the highest standards of automotive quality and thanks to a great many design options, allows for a wide variety of customization.

The Plus X Award is a prize rewarding innovation in products in the areas of technology, sports and lifestyle. Already in 2015, the Webasto panorama roof with infrared absorption was distinguished with the award in the categories Innovation and High Quality.
