As the transportation market shifts from internal combustion engines (ICE) to battery powered electric vehicles (EV), a few things remain constant; vehicles need to be lighter, more efficient, and equal or better performance than (ICE). These constants effect every model moving to (EV). The major difference is (EV's) need a bank of batteries to travel the same distance as (ICE). Structural components and covers are required to protect the batteries lying within the structure of the vehicle. With current automotive designs tailored to steel and aluminum it is hard to achieve efficiencies to compete with ICE, this is the reason for Sheet Molding Compounds (SMC).
SMC should be considered an alternative to traditional materials steel and aluminum. Lower volume vehicles are the target due to initial investment spending.
This session is suggested for engineering, program management, and executives interested in alternative material solutions.
