An Aluminum Makeover for the Genesis GV70 EV Body

As the world transitions to electric vehicles, automobile manufacturers can benefit from the advantages of using aluminum for every body part. To demonstrate this fact, utilizing a ‘Less is More’ strategy, Alumobility’s engineers worked with Hyundai Motor Europe’s Technical Center to conduct a theoretical conversion of the Genesis GV70 EV SUV steel intensive body to a full aluminum body.
