Burscheid, Germany – Johnson Controls said the seating system it designed from the ground up is being used in the new Volvo S90 available this summer.
New Volvo features thin, comfy seats says JCI
"We're very pleased to have had the opportunity to contribute our experience in seating development and manufacturing to the interior design of the Volvo S90," said Tony Malila, vp and general manager, Customer Group Volvo, at Johnson Controls Automotive Seating.
"Collaborating closely with the team at Volvo, we designed a seat that optimally utilises the vehicle's interior, providing all occupants with plenty of space and comfort.”
While the front seats are designed to be comfortable, they take up relatively little space because they have slim backrests to maximise the amount of space available to rear seat passengers.
In addition to the seat covers and upholstery for all of the Volvo S90's seats, Johnson Controls developed the rear seat bench. Johnson Controls was responsible for its entire development process, from designing and supplying the metal structure to integration.
