LG Electronics have received the coveted GM Innovation Award for 2020. At General Motors’ 28th Annual Supplier of the Year Awards event last, the automotive leader’s first ever virtual ceremony, the brand was recognised its development (together with sister company LG Display) of the revolutionary P-OLED cockpit technology in the 2021 Cadillac Escalade. This is the second time LG Electronics has been recognized as a GM Supplier of the Year, having received the Overdrive Award in 2016 with LG Chem for supplying innovative automotive technologies and components behind GM’s electric vehicle (EV) efforts.
The P-OLED cockpit technology in the 2021 Cadillac Escalade not only acts as an impressive centerpiece inside the iconic SUV, it also represents the first time LG’s advanced Digital Cockpit Solution is featured in a commercial vehicle. The 38-inch display is composed of three separate P-OLED display panels, the largest measuring 16.9 inches diagonally. The three curved screens make up the Instrument Panel Cluster for displaying basic vehicle-related information and an Integrated Central Stack that serves as an infotainment display for audio, video and easy navigation. LG’s futuristic integrated display system offers a wide viewing angle, unmatched design flexibility and a much improved human-machine interface.
LG Electronics continues to work closely with GM across various sectors, and since 2015, has been supplying 11 important vehicle parts, including infotainment systems, instrument clusters and driving components, for GM’s leading electric vehicle, the Chevrolet Bolt EV.
