LG Display has supplied OLED light panels to Chang’s Custom, a Korean car customizing company, to create the world’s first van equipped with OLED interior lighting. The OLED light panel is a surface light source that emits evenly diffused light. OLED light panels are known for their thinness and lightness that makes them ideal for car interiors.

While OLED light panels are already been considered for use as automotive tail lights, Chang’s Custom is challenging the auto interior light market with this new technology. OLED light panels are being used to replace ceiling lighting and door interior lighting that now use LED and halogen bulbs. For ceiling lighting, Chang’s Custom used 320x110mm LG OLED light panels with a dimmer that can be controlled by the driver.

The company is also using 200x50mm LG OLED light panels for side lighting. The warm and soft light emitted by the OLED light panels creates a luxurious state-of-the-art atmosphere in the car interior. Jong Soo Chang, CEO of Chang’s Custom, said, “We believe LG Display OLED light panels will create psychological comfort for the driver while giving a luxurious and glamorous feel for passengers. The interior lighting provided by OLED represents a perfect fit for premium-class vehicles.”
