Solutions for the cars of the future

Reducing emissions is a key aim for the cars of the future. We can provide the necessary solutions – for example with InCar plus, a project that can save up to 1.76 tons of CO2 over the lifetime of a car, and with our special steel for electric motors. Our battery production lines and a broad range of lightweight steels also contribute to sustainable mobility.

InCar plus – for the cars of the future

InCar plus – for the cars of the future

The cars of the future need to be lighter, greener, and more economical. And that can be achieved if experts from all disciplines work together – as in the InCar plus project. The innovations developed under this project can save up to eight grams of CO2 per kilometer. Over the entire life cycle of a car, InCar plus stands for CO2 savings of 1.76 tons per vehicle.

Electrical steel: The heart of an electric motor

Electrical steel: The heart of an electric motor

Are powerful batteries the most important thing for electric motors in cars? Not quite. A very special material is needed to get the power from the battery onto the road: electrical steel. This material is of key importance for the torque and efficiency of electric motors.

Battery plant technology: Cost-efficient battery production

Battery plant technology: Cost-efficient battery production

In our own technical center in Hohenstein-Ernstthal in the German state of Saxony, we test all aspects of battery production from cell to complete system. This work forms the basis for the planning and design of production lines for electric car batteries.

Automotive weight reduction: Ultrahigh-strength steels and composites

Automotive weight reduction: Ultrahigh-strength steels and composites

The automotive industry faces a number of major challenges, the greatest of which is to cut CO2 emissions. Automotive weight reduction with steel makes an important contribution to this, especially because it makes ecological sense and can be achieved economically. This makes it a practicable solution even for small and mid-size vehicles where cost pressure is high – i.e. the majority of all cars.

Efficient powertrains: Less can be more

Efficient powertrains: Less can be more

The intake and exhaust valves on an engine open up to 3,000 times a minute, that’s more than 12 million times over the lifetime of a car. How wide they open is controlled by the shape of the cams on the camshaft – a technology that has been in use since the 19th century. We have now improved it significantly.
