AHSS Guidelines

The book that every press shop, engineer and automaker should have--Get the Guidelines

FROM STARS TO CARS

 

The element that helped shape the planet can help save it.  Watch this video and get the Kindle book to find out how.

NATURE’S WAY TO MOBILITY

 

FutureSteelVehicle takes green vehicles to a whole new level.  A light weight Advanced High-Strength Steel body structure combined with electrified powertrains reduces total life cycle greenhouse gas emissions by up to 70%, without blowing the budget.  A complete set of engineering reports tells how.

Why Use LCA?

This brief animation gives a simple explanation about what life cycle assessment is and why it’s important for measuring vehicle carbon footprint.

RETHINK EMISSIONS

 

We believe that the only way to truly low emissions vehicles is to evaluate emissions over the entire life cycle—a life cycle assessment.  Measuring only tailpipe emissions will eventually leave half of vehicle emissions unaccounted for and unregulated.  LCA is the best way to a smaller vehicle carbon footprint.  Learn about it.

Automakers Use AHSS to Make Better Cars – an article by GN Focus

Ahead of their times:  Steel industry projects FutureSteelVehicle, ULSAB-AVC, ULSAB and ULSAC demonstrated advanced steel applications for lightweight, safe, affordable and environmentally sound automotive structures.  Their engineering reports are still being downloaded today by engineers worldwide–there’s still so much to be gleaned from the steel and steel technologies demonstrated by these projects. GN Focus, a […]

[VIDEO] FutureSteelVehicle featured in German Federation Video

The German Federation (Wirtschaftsvereinigung Stahl im Stahl-Zentrum), in which our German members participate, just finished a video (in German) that promotes steel’s effectiveness in multiple industries, called “An insightful day – future begins with steel”.  For automotive, they used the actual models, inside and out, of FutureSteelVehicle as an example for steel’s vehicle lightweighting and performance potential.
