Do more than drive, start living

Our consumer insights reveal that there is an unmet Experiences Per Mile need for a “third living space.” These are our EXP concepts to address that need.
Create richer experiences with HARMAN ExP concepts

We believe the car should be more than just a way to transport you. It should add to your life by giving you bonding time with your family, productive time to work, relaxing time to escape, enjoyment, and more. ​

 HARMAN ExP concepts creates moments of magic for drivers and riders. It’s those moments when you forget about the technology and lose yourself in the experience.

Bringing Technology to Life

Our design process puts consumer understanding – from the car to the living room and beyond – at the core of everything we do. On the surface, you see many pain points in the car: 

  • Parking, traffic, and accidents
  • Loss of connectivity to the phone
  • Not being able to interact with car tech the way they do their phone or smart home devices

But to see the full story, we have to dig deeper. We look to understand drivers and riders across these three dimensions: Who they are, what they care about and How the car can satisfies those desires.

Based on our human, cultural, and industry insights, we identify the Experiences Per Mile (EPM) drivers and riders are looking for to satisfy their deeper needs and desires. We then bring those EPMs to life with HARMAN ExP concepts.​
