Honda CR-Z, AHSS Light Weight, Safe

2011 Honda CR-ZHonda was one of the first companies to incorporate some of the highest grade AHSS (980 MPa tensile strength and beyond) into body structures, as shown in the image. Two of Honda’s major initiatives in recent years have been safety and environmental leadership, both which are supported through the use of AHSS. They advertise the ACE™ (Advanced Compatibility Engineering™) Body Structure, now incorporated into all of their vehicles, as a next-generation body design to enhance passenger safety. The structure was designed particularly to improve crashworthiness in the case of collision between size-mismatched vehicles.
