S-in motion® customisable steel solutions for BEV enable carmakers to extend range, reduce cost, and enhance safety at the most affordable cost
For the transition to electric vehicles to be fully successful, carmakers must increase efforts to extend range, reduce cost, and enhance safety. In this webinar, ArcelorMittal specialists will demonstrate why e-mobility needs smart steel.
A new S-in motion® study from ArcelorMittal reveals that advanced high strength steels (AHSS) solutions are the best choice to achieve this revolution in mobility at an affordable cost. This presentation will give automotive engineers inspiration on how to build the battery pack (housing the battery cells and equipment).
For example, the S-in motion® examination of the battery pack demonstrated how critical the battery pack is by simulating some of the most severe load cases such as underfloor intrusion, and pole crush and drop tests. The high mechanical properties of ArcelorMittal’s MartINsite® 1500 steel grade exhibited excellent results in these tests when combined with an appropriate design. The three main sub-modules (upper cross member, frame and lower shield) were found to benefit from this steel grade.
