ENLIGHT - Enhanced Lightweight Design

ENLIGHT strives to advance highly innovative lightweight material technologies for application in structural vehicle parts of future volume produced Electric Vehicles (EVs) along four axes: performance, manufacturability, cost effectiveness and lifecycle footprint. The main target is to develop viable and sustainable solutions for medium production volume EVs destined to reach the market in the next 8-12 years.

Through the collaboration of EUCAR, CLEPA and EARPA, ENLIGHT will act as an open innovation platform, integrating valuable insights from other EU research projects with a holistic design approach.
