Dominant DomiLED and SpiceLED light sources are distributed by Tenrod Australia .
LEDs made by Dominant Opto Technologies have been used for the interior illumination of the third generation of Kia’s Sportage car, which was presented at the 80th Geneva Motor Show in March 2010.
The interior design is based on lighting systems using compact LED technology.
The dashboard features DomiLEDs and SpiceLEDs in special customised colours providing accent lighting.
They are implemented not only in the backlighting of the dashboard but also in various buttons and switches as indicator light source such as green DomiLEDs in the auto temperature controller and amber DomiLEDs in the audio and LCD buttons.
Kia’s design team has opted for LED light sources for their design choosing DomiLEDs and SpiceLEDs not only due to their low power consumption and high functionality but also for their extremely small size, which is of crucial benefit for automobile designers replacing traditional light sources with LEDs in automotive applications.
