Structures Changes due to Electrified

  • Without engine powertrain,body structure become simpler
  • To achieve a longer range ,generally EV cars are 250~400kg heavier than fuel cars
  • Popular longer wheel base and short overhang design style

pportunities From EV cars:

  • Lightweight is goal-oriented by more and more OEMs;
  • In EV cars body & chassis structures become simple, so there are more opportunities to use Extrusion and Rolling processes;
  • Heavier weight and shorter collision area, cars need stronger Front/Rear/Side crash system
