ALIVE is an EU collaborative research project that aims to develop key vehicle lightweighting technologies based on advanced metal and hybrid materials. ALIVE aims for application in near-future electric vehicles (EV) to be introduced into the market from 2020 and at a level of technology readiness that would enable mass production.
The key objective is to achieve affordable solutions for vehicle weight reduction, targeting a 45 - 50 % weight reduction of the Body-in-White (BiW) comparing to benchmark state-of-the-art EVs recently introduced to the market, as well as a 25 - 30 % weight saving in the hang-on parts, chassis and main interior sub-systems.
ALIVE is directly linked to a network of recently concluded, on-going and planned parallel activities and as such offers a coordinated platform within the context of the Green Car program for achieving an unprecedented level of impact with respect to increasing EU competitiveness through the development and uptake of real innovation.
