In this blog, Neil McGregor outlines how safety structures are being developed for the Steel E-Motive vehicles using AHSS and innovative vehicle architecture solutions.
Transport and the way people use it is changing. In the next 20-years, urban mobility is expected to be transformed by the widespread roll-out of fully autonomous vehicles operating within a ride-hailing, mobility as a service (MaaS) model. This will enable people living in and visiting cities to plan, book, and pay for multiple types of mobility services through a digital channel.
How AHSS is improving high voltage battery design and integration in electric vehicles for MaaS applications
Owain Davies discusses how Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS) is enabling a greater level of flexibility when making battery design decisions for a safe, comfortable and accessible autonomous vehicle experience.
