S-in motion® – Smart steel solutions for a BEV body-in-white, by:
One of the challenges in developing a body-in-white (BIW) for battery electric vehicles (BEVs) is the design of a lightweight and cost-effective structure to protect both the passengers and battery pack in the event of a crash. ArcelorMittal’s S-in motion® SUV BEV solutions address this challenge and propose smart designs in advanced high strength steel (AHSS). One area that benefits from the deployment of AHSS is the front module, especially the rocker and battery pack protection. A deep dive into these applications will highlight the high performance of Ductibor® 1000 on very deformed components and Usibor® 2000 or MartINsite® steel grades for anti-intrusion and cost-efficient reinforcement.
S-in motion® – Smart steel solutions for the Battery pack, by:
The automotive industry is participating in an ecological transition by developing electric vehicles. But choosing the right materials for the battery housing is a complex process. To help car manufacturers make the best choice, ArcelorMittal has studied different battery housing concepts. Our aim was to identify the best possible solutions in terms of cost and CO2 emissions for different types of vehicles. Our S-in motion® Battery Housing concepts have been assessed against industry standards including crush and underfloor intrusion tests. They are compatible and feasible with existing OEM or Tier 1 manufacturing processes. The concepts are fully made from steel and use the best grades for each component (from mild steel to MartINsite® steel grades). The steel structures can be adapted to specific requirements.
S-in motion® – Smart steel solutions for a BEV Rear chassis, by:
The latest S-in motion® study from ArcelorMittal aims to inspire auto engineers to save weight on BEV chassis with smart steel solutions. The study identified new design options for the rear chassis of a battery electric vehicle (BEV) using the most advanced high strength steels (AHSS) from ArcelorMittal. The study also found that significant cost, weight, and emission savings could be achieved with advanced steels while maintaining chassis rigidity and performance. In this webinar, we will share the conclusions of a new study that demonstrates how ferrite-bainite steels (in the 600 MPa tensile strength range) and complex-phase steels (800 to 1000 MPa) contribute to the overall performance of a BEV chassis.
