ArcelorMittal and I-FEVS have launched a new collaboration aimed at developing safe, light, sustainable, and affordable innovative steel solutions for e-mobility applications. The new I-FEVS solutions will rely on ArcelorMittal’s advanced high strength steels (AHSS) which are already widely used in mobility applications.
“I-FEVS’ collaboration with the world’s leading steel producer is an opportunity to further consolidate our ability to develop safe and lightweight e-mobility solutions using steel – the most abundant and most sustainable metal on earth. Our fleet of 2-, 3-, and 4-wheel vehicles have received a high positive response from potential users during recent demonstrations. Having ArcelorMittal’s support as we optimize our designs is the most effective way to achieve mass-market adoption of these solutions.”
Pietro Perlo, General Director of I-FEVS
The collaboration will cover:
ArcelorMittal will bring its extensive experience in AHSS and automotive products to the collaboration with I-FEVS. Together the companies will develop solutions which support and optimize new mobility concepts developed by I-FEVS through R&D activities funded by the European Union. These projects are aimed at the e-mobility sector and comply with the EU’s Green Transition Plan (Fit for 55 package).
“Through this collaboration with I-FEVS, ArcelorMittal demonstrates that we are fully engaged with partners who want to develop new, innovative, and sustainable steel solutions for electric mobility.”
