With the increasing demands on improved fuel economy, safety and CO2 footprint, Ford Motor Company is turning to lightweight materials for body and chassis structures. This talk outlines the current and future role that advanced high strength steel, aluminum, magnesium and composites can have in lightweight automotive structures. Many challenges face these advanced lightweight materials include material performance, part production times, vehicle assembly issues and overall system costs. Also, recent Ford award winning cars and trucks will be highlighted.
