January 10, 2024
In this free 60-minute webinar, Dr. Thorolf Schulte will present the findings of a joint study with the Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Center, which involved a theoretical conversion of the Genesis GV70 EV body to full aluminum.
Key topics and takeaways:
- Discover how replacing steel with aluminum in the body structure results in a 40% weight savings against the reference parts
- Learn how the shift to aluminum reduced the part count in the GV70 by 15%
Find out why the full aluminum body contains 25% fewer total joints than the reference body
- Understand how the aluminum GV70 EV maintains or surpasses the steel-intensive body’s performance attributes
