New White Paper: When It Comes to Aluminum Vehicles, Less Is More
July 26, 2023
When it comes to aluminum vehicles, less is more.
Compare two identical vehicles with equal stiffness and load-carrying capacity—one made of aluminum, the other of steel. Because aluminum has one-third the density of steel, the aluminum vehicle body will be up to 45% lighter. This gives aluminum vehicles multiple advantages, in terms of energy efficiency, reduced emissions, improved ride and handling, better accelerating and braking, increased durability, safety, circular economy benefits…the list goes on.
