Save weight for electric vehicles

ID: F1508-10

No single product category can meet with the fat and performance requirements of all of the electric vehicle (EV) components simultaneously. Reducing the weight of transport vehicles that operate on interior combustion machines (ICEs) is becoming increasingly relevant in modern times as a route to reduced gas consumption and emissions. Light weight can also be a target of EV developers as it escalates the notably limited range that is driving recharging is necessary. Understanding are drawn from the many years of research on ICE-powered cars, but key distinctions exist in design constraints as well as in crash behaviours. Principal target is yet another 20 % reduction in fat beyond the 30 % decrease in body-in-white (BiW) fat already achieved by other projects. BiW describes the car human body or shell after it is welded but prior to it being painted. Extra and goals that are equally important to lessen time-to-market and development costs, enhance product freedom, extend the lifetime of major components and decrease life-cycle expenses. The approach centres on revolutionary materials and their respective installation procedures. The combination of new simulation and testing abilities covers production, use and crash scenarios. With all the tools for development and screening in position, the group has reached its preliminary conceptual design regarding the complete automobile. The design will be turned into a full-scale demonstrator of the lightweight multi-material strategy during the upcoming months.
