Autonomous & Safety

Electric vehicles have brought new challenges to automotive OEMs and consumers alike. We understand concerns for OEMs are passenger safety and cost. The material selection for rigidity, impact resistance, and thermal stability impacts vehicle safety. Additionally, costs are affected by material cost, the ease of manufacturing, ease of service, and the bulk and weight of the design. Mitsubishi Chemical Group partners with OEMs and Tiers to develop innovative material solutions to solve concerns from OEMs and consumers.

Intelligent Interior Cabin

As vehicles become more connected and autonomous, passenger focus shifts to the ultimate cabin experience. While traveling, passengers pay more attention to the high-performance displays and design of the tactile surfaces, elevating their drive, and material manufacturers are continually looking for new ways to increase the aesthetics and haptics of the cabin. Noise-canceling technologies have become increasingly important to ensure a quiet, comfortable drive. Additionally, with a heightened focus on hygiene, antibacterial and antiviral coating technologies and surfaces are making the list of aspects drivers and passengers alike require in vehicles.

  • High designability film for interior
  • Display film
  • Light control film
  • Acoustic metamaterials


The shift from Internal Combustion Engines (ICE) to electric vehicles (EVs), which run on a motor powered by electric energy, has been accelerating worldwide due in part to environmental regulations implemented to combat climate change. The new technologies and materials required to transition to EVs have challenged traditional automotive OEMs and opened the door for market disruptors in the industry. Passengers have been hesitant about the new technologies due to safety and driving range concerns. To combat this, OEMs must bring higher-capacity batteries with excellent thermal management to ensure safety, performance improvement, and charging infrastructure to meet the demanding needs of consumers.
