NIO 3.0 version of its Digital Cockpit system ASPEN won the User Interface Award at the 2022 edition of iF Design Awards. Each year, iF International Forum Design GmbH organizes one of the world’s most celebrated and valued design competitions: the iF DESIGN AWARD. In 2021, there were almost 10,000 submissions from 60 countries.
“In Aspen 3.0, we redesigned the multi-display digital cockpit driving experience, which set the design goal of “Useful meets Beautiful”. The improvement of the user experience helps users to operate OS more efficiently and easily, such as new half-screen cards and custom cards. While concise and exquisite UI Design details resemble the NIO Design DNA.
We enriched the application ecosystem with new Media apps, Maps, Smart Car Controls, Karaoke App and Meditation App. Comparing to 2.0, 3.0 now covers more user scenarios, bringing users a fuller driving experience that is safer and provides more joy”, NIO said.
