Stockholm 08 May 2023. A well-known European luxury car manufacturer that produces high-end vehicles known for their sleek and modern design, advanced technology, and performance, will launch CabinAir's Active Air Quality solution in large numbers globally by the end of 2025. The brand, which is often associated with innovation, precision engineering, and attention to detail, is expanding its commitment to providing a luxury driving experience with an added focus on in-cabin air quality.
CabinAir's Active Air Quality solution is based on patented two-stage technology that makes pollution particles more "sticky" and traps them in the filter more efficient. This technology is up to 15 times more effective at removing harmful ultra-fine particles than standard filters. Tests carried out by Guangzhou Institute of Microbiology show that the solution also removes 99.97% of airborne bacteria and viruses, similar in size as SARS-CoV-2. Since the solution cleans the air before it enters the cabin, drivers can enjoy a constant flow of fresh and clean air.
Traditional systems need to recirculate the air in the car to reach acceptable low levels of particulates. However, as air is recirculated, oxygen levels in the car decrease, and CO2 levels increase, causing the driver to become drowsy and react more slowly. CabinAir's technology can contribute to reducing traffic accidents by helping to keep drivers more alert.
More vehicles globally, promoting safer and healthier cabins
For several years, CabinAir technology has been on the road in Volvo Cars, some of the world's most highly regarded vehicles in terms of driver and passenger health and safety. It is an integral part of Volvo Cars' and Polestar's Advanced Air Cleaner (AAC) systems. With a new OEM contract signed, more drivers and passengers will be able to breathe healthy air inside their vehicles.
Daniel Hagström, CabinAir CEO and co-founder, states, "The automotive industry is taking in-cabin air quality more and more seriously. We are very proud to have been chosen to be a volume supplier to one of the top brands in the industry. It's proof that we are doing things right, both for the car-driving population and from a business and technology perspective."
