Innovation

Anticipating tomorrow’s innovations today

At Adient, we stay ahead by thinking ahead. And we’re always innovating, creating the solutions that will drive us – and the automotive seating industry – forward.

We’re trendsetters:

We leverage consumer data from our own trend research to explore the habits, needs and desires of drivers and passengers. These insights – along with the inspiration we draw from outside the automotive seating market – help inform our future initiatives. And they allow us to meet new industry developments, like individualization, customization and autonomous driving, head on.

We’re future-focused:

Our manufacturing processes can deliver on a just-in-time basis, but our product design work begins well in advance. We often plan our development one, five or even 10 years ahead of schedule. Always one step ahead – Like our concepts for autonomous vehicle seating solutions: AI17 for privately owned vehicles and AI18 for ride sharing.

We keep the big picture in mind:

Our approach is all about seeing the tiny details, without losing sight of our broader vision: to improve the experience of a world in motion. Whether it’s our ComfortThin seats that help reduce vehicle weight and improve fuel efficiency or our eco-friendly foam formulations made with recyclable materials, we continue to design our products with our customers in mind. 

We treat you like a partner:

At Adient, we don’t innovate in isolation. Instead, we work together. By listening to your objectives. Reviewing your requirements. And then matching them with our deep experience and expertise. 

We excel in safety and comfort:

For us, innovation means high quality, protection, convenience. From our Pre-Adjust seats that automatically conform to consumers’ bodies to our riAct head restraints that expertly defend against whiplash, our products are the most advanced in the industry.
