NanoSteel AHSS Enables Significant Weight Savings
Delivered Through Nano-Structured Material Properties
NanoSteel commissioned EDAG to assess the potential of its nano-structured steel to light-weight future vehicle models and meet higher MPG requirements
The study assessed the ability to achieve weight savings while maintaining safety and ride quality requirements.
NanoSteel generated a 30% weight savings compared to the baseline vehicle design and a 10.5% percent savings over a vehicle optimized with existing AHSS.
NanoSteel’s performance is generated through proprietary micro-structures at the nanoscale.
