Visteon supplies JLR Velar electronics

Visteon announced it was supplying cockpit electronics and rear entertainment system parts for JLR's Range Rover Velar.

The model has Visteon's 12.3-inch reconfigurable HD virtual cluster with retina-class resolution.

This allows the driver to personalise information in different configurations using a combination of dials, information display zones and a full-view map when in navigation mode. Similar displays are used on JLR's Jaguar models and many from the VW group brands.

Visteon also supplies Velar's dual eight-inch rear displays for the entertainment system.

Sachin Lawande, Visteon president and CEO, said: "We have a long standing collaboration with Jaguar Land Rover in digital display development that has pioneered several industry firsts – including large-format reconfigurable clusters and high-resolution dual-view information displays."

Additional cockpit cluster functionality includes video and ethernet network links to the infotainment, multimedia interface, language support and a connection to the steering switch touch pad.

Operating independently, the rear displays incorporate HDMI and HD link connections that support most smartphones, tablets and other portable devices, while front seat occupants are able to select, monitor and control the content shown.

Visteon also supplies the instrument cluster for Jaguar's recently launched F-PACE.
