LG sells in-car displays to Porsche and Honda

tv-carIn a move to save its perky bottom line, LG Electronics is to supply Honda and Porsche with in-car displays.

The company has been looking to auto business sales to counter weak sales at its mainstay television and smartphone units.

LG Electronics has started mass production of the Honda’s centre information displays, which will be placed in the console. It will start doing the same for Porsche in the first half of 2016.

LG Display is supplying the liquid crystal display panels. In the April-June quarter, LG’s new auto business, which involves various products including in-car displays and camera systems, accounted for 11.5 percent of overall sales in the April-June quarter.

LG Electronics is also working with BMW, General Motors and Mercedes Benz for research and development of centre information displays, but so far no products have arrived yet.
