The system allows you to quickly eliminate fogging or icing
The heated windshield is certainly a very useful feature that allows you to quickly eliminate icing or fogging.
But when driving in certain conditions the driver can see the filament, which creates some inconvenience.
Volkswagen has developed a technology to solve this problem. Instead of the traditional filaments apply a very thin conductive layer of silver embedded in the structure of the windshield. The system allows you to quickly eliminate fogging or icing, spending 400-500 watts of power.
In the area of the wiper rest, which is not visible to the driver continue to apply the filament. They prevent the icing of the brushes and their freezing to the glass.
It is curious that in the summer a thin layer of silver acts as a “heat shield”, reflecting solar radiation. This makes it easier to cool the interior and reduce the load on the air conditioning system.
Windshield new type is offered as an option on models Golf, Golf Sportsvan, Tiguan, Sharan, Passat and Passat Variant. The price starts from 340 euros.
