Johnson Controls Honored with Design and Technology Award For Development of Innovative Vios Concept Vehicle

Innovative seating and cargo storage options are a key part of the integrated small-car interior of Johnson Controls' Vios concept. Front passenger seats can be folded flat and equipped with functional modules for office, backpack and food-handling applications. When front and back seats on the passenger side are folded down, large items like skis can easily be stored inside.

Johnson Controls' Vios concept features modular, "upgradable" electronic devices and controls in the instrument panel that can be updated as a person's needs change by plugging new systems into vertical slots. Most controls are positioned in the "center stack" of the instrument panel, in response to consumer research findings.
