Adient’s premium brand Recaro Automotive Seating is presenting its all-new modular Recaro Performance Seat Platform (RPSP) at NAIAS 2018. Addressing OEM customers in a broad range of perfomance segments, two versions and a half-cut of the new generation product emphasize superior design, lightweight, configurability options – and more.
“With our modular RPSP we make a strong statement to our OEM customers in the U.S.: This new generation product platform is a customer-focused solution to meet the increasing demands for performance, safety, light weight, comfort and design, addressing a broad range of performance and luxury vehicles,” says Martin C. Klein, head of Recaro Automotive Seating. “Our RPSP will support OEMs in differentiating and underlining their respective brand and product DNA – because the seat appears to be a crucial differentiator in performance vehicles.”
Two applications of the Recaro Performance Seat Platform (RPSP) will be unveiled at this year’s NAIAS, covering the whole perfomance seat range: From a slim, “reduced to the max” version in lightweight design to a demonstrator with advanced features and design innovations, such as visible, carbon fiber-woven backrest structure, aiming at the top luxury segment.
With its ultra-slim RPSP design, at less total weight Recaro Automotive Seating is generating more space, provided by the body-shaped composite seat structure and thin IntelliTech™ foam. This light, rigid, and flexible foam allows for integrated attachments for ventilation, spacers etc. Thus, it reduces weight by 40% and thickness by 50% (minus 8mm) compared to standard PU foam. Customized design solutions can be realized by various back panels and belt-guide bezels.
