AutomotiveNews believes that heads-up displays will increase in popularity among mainstream models as driver information and safety technologies become more ubiquitous. HUDs are not new to the automotive world as General Motors has been producing HUDs since 1988 for select models. Other brands on the higher tier of luxury began including them as cars became more jam-packed with technology.
Though as technology becomes more readily available and affordable, more and more models could be seeing this. At the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, Panasonic unveiled their take on more compact system that car companies can possibly adopt for use.
According to AN‘s statistics, there are a total of 38 vehicles on sale in the US as of this year that come with the option or use of a heads-up display. That figure is up by 13 models from 2009.
