Audi TechDay – Lightweight Design

2009-09-11

Lightweight design is one of Audi’s core competences – for 15 years now the brand has been building aluminum bodies based on the Audi Space Frame. Whether aluminum, ultra-high-strength steel or CFRP materials, Audi has gathered comprehensive expertise in all areas of development and production. And lightweight design will continue to play a central role in the future – for further increasing efficiency and for the electric drive systems of tomorrow. After all, reversing the weight spiral is one of the most important of all the challenges that Audi faces.
