Novelis Advanz™ s650 alloy in roll-formed frame sections, the new EV battery enclosure is 50% lighter than traditional steel enclosures
Mass reduction improvement of over 20% versus the baseline aluminum (extruded concepts)
Improved cell-to-pack (CTP) package efficiency and structural performance delivers a 30% improvement in energy density versus the benchmark
Best-in-class frame mass efficiency of below 1.0 kg/Kwh
Novelis has worked with industry partners and automotive engineers to enhance the design of its EV battery enclosure solution and introduce innovations, including aluminum roll forming, advanced CTP modular architecture and structurally integrated thermal management concept.
These innovations, combined with Novelis’ advanced material technology, result in a best-in-class frame mass efficiency of below 1.0 kg/Kwh, and a mass reduction improvement of over 20% versus the baseline aluminum benchmark production enclosure from a leading European electric SUV manufacturer.
The improved CTP efficiency and structural performance also delivers a 30% improvement in energy density versus the benchmark.
