If there is a single positive note that COVID-19 has brought to the automobile industry, it is the heightened push from manufacturers to emphasize health, wellness and well-being (HWW) environments for vehicles.
With workers returning to the workplace, people are once again spending large amounts of time in their vehicles each day. Studies estimate the daily commute is averaging 40 minutes each day. At the same time, technology has allowed healthcare to move beyond hospital walls via smart homes, smart wearable devices, and smart vehicles that can assess a person’s health and wellbeing.
According to Frost & Sullivan’s Health, Wellness and Well-being Technologies Report, HWW will appear in the form of ‘purify’ and ‘measure and monitor’ car features. ‘Purify’ will monitor air quality and track pollution. ‘Measure and monitor’ features will focus on the health of the drivers and passengers in a car and aid in emergencies. Such features will include ergonomic seats, muscle therapy and rear seats that can be constructed for exercise activities. Location sensors can warn of allergens and biosensors can provide drunk-driving prevention, drowsiness, and many other wellness features.
Providing HWW features for cars can’t be done within the automotive industry alone. It will need collaboration from many sectors, including the healthcare industry, software enterprises, wearable manufacturers, and many more.
Car buyers will continue to want protection from Covid-19
Post-pandemic outlooks are predicting that the demand for cleanliness will remain high as consumers continue to redefine what they consider clean and safe. According to Volvo Car USA, consumers have new expectations for vehicles with a heightened interest in clean air inside of cabins. Consumers will continue to want to feel good about purchasing a car that has been thoroughly disinfected. Buyers now are making their health a priority when making that purchase and that desire will not fade as we emerge from the pandemic over the coming months and years.
NuVinAir stands prepared to offer its solution to the rising expectations of consumers that vehicles be clean and sanitized before purchase.
