The unique design will offer a number of benefits for drivers including improved fuel efficiency, a reduction of coefficient drag, and when retracted back into the vehicle, provides drivers with extra room for parking, affording much needed peace of mind.

Managing director at MarchantCain, Rob Marchant, explained: “There is an increasing focus on improving vehicle fuel efficiencies while enhancing the driving experience.

“This latest concept from MarchantCain is set to make a significant contribution to this vision. Our rear-view camera mirror pod has been uniquely designed by our team of experts to sit perfectly within a vehicle door.  It will also have a significant impact upon drag reduction, reducing wind noise with overall benefits for fuel efficiencies.”

Beyond its work in the UK, MarchantCain’s unique new concepts and designs have already caught the attention of a number of German automotive manufacturers, with the company rapidly expanding its presence in the country over the past 12 months, a momentum which its hoping to build upon across the two-day event.

In addition to the launch of its latest innovation, MarchantCain will be showcasing a range of its latest design products, with a stand that has been doubled in size in order to accommodate the expanding range.

Visitors to the MarchantCain stand (E30) will have the opportunity to see products including a lightweight window regulator, made using low cost tooling methods, moving electro chromatic glass and an active aerodynamic, electrically powered rear spoiler and air brake.
