Plastic technology contributes to sub-one-ton electrical sports car

from Plastics Today

The performance data of the Lotus Elise-E lightweight electrical sports car that Evonik Industries presented at the recent Car Symposium in Bochum, Germany, are impressive, as is its extensive usage of performance plastics. The vehicle weighs just 950 kilograms, has a power of 150 kW, and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds. The sandwich structure with Rohacell polymethacrylimide structural foam and carbon fibers makes the body 60-70 percent lighter than a comparable steel structure. more
