An innovative lightweight platform concept for electric vehicles (EVs) has been unveiled.

Williams Advanced Engineering says its new approach is designed to make EVs lighter, safer and greener, with longer range and better performance.

The concept features several innovations in battery pack design, cooling systems and lightweight structures, which have each been integrated into a single, scalable platform.

For instance, the engineers have developed a highly automated, near zero waste process that is being implemented to create fibre reinforced suspension components on the EV platform, providing up to 40% weight reduction.

Paul McNamara, Williams Advanced Engineering Technical Director said: “By making EVs more attractive to consumers, we can help accelerate their adoption and the air quality benefits they bring.”
