Asahi Glass to Be Installed in Subaru Impreza

December 5, 2011

Asahi Glass Co. Ltd. (AGC) recently announced that its UV Verre Premium(TM) is to be installed in Fuji Heavy Industries’ Subaru Impreza as an option. The glass is reportedly the world’s first tempered glass for automotive front door windows that filters out approximately 99% of the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays.

Fuji Heavy Industries has made a full model change of the car, aiming to achieve a stylish exterior and luxurious interior. In developing this vehicle line, the company considered drivers’ lifestyles and values, and adopted UV Verre Premium as an option in response to consumers’ concerns about UV protection. The glass reportedly filters out the sun’s UV rays completely to help to make the drivers more comfortable.
