Mobility is a basic human need and a key to the sustainability of our society and economy. The demands imposed on the individuality, safety, environmental compatibility and efficiency of motor vehicles therefore are very high. To meet them, Covestro is developing innovative and sustainable material solutions that push previous technical boundaries. The company is presenting a new concept in electric car design at this year's VDI Plastics in Automotive Engineering conference on March 29 and 30, 2017, in Mannheim, Germany.
“Based on pioneering plastics technologies, the concept incorporates current trends in the automotive design,” says project manager Jochen Hardt. “It enables us to give vehicle designers new possibilities for designing comfortable, functional and energy-efficient cars.” Partners for the development of the concept were automotive supplier HELLA and the distinguished Umeå Institute of Design in Sweden. At the VDI congress, this visionary concept will be on display in the form of a lifestyle electric car.
