SKODA ENYAQ iV takes a fresh approach to lighting design
Petr Nevřela: In implementing ŠKODA’s current design language, we already consistently developed the front headlights of the SCALA and KAMIQ model series and the new generation of the OCTAVIA. With the ENYAQ iV, we are continuing this trend and refining specific details, such as the new, finely-drawn daytime running lights with subtle lashes and the new hexagonal shape of the main LED modules. The new headlights and taillights further enhance the innovative character of the new ENYAQ iV.
How long does the development process take when designing new headlights and rear lights?
Nevřela: The development of the design is a dynamic process; we work closely with our colleagues in exterior design and with the exterior lighting development team. All in all, the process can take anywhere from six to twelve months.
What inspires you when designing new headlights and taillights?
The precise lines, geometric arrangements and the exceptionally clear glass surfaces are fascinating and, depending on the incidence of light and viewing angle, offer ever-changing facets. We can use this as a basis for experimenting with light effects, for example, with the three-dimensional rear lights that are illuminated with fine light strips.
What initial impression do the new ENYAQ iV’s headlights convey?
Nevřela: The ENYAQ iV’s lighting graphics are welcoming and friendly at first glance, while the headlights create a highly dynamic and modern look.
