POSCO Signs Agreement to Supply Lightweight Steel to Renault Eolab Concept

POSCO has supplied Renault lightweight steel its Eolab plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) concept car. The lightweight steel grades include 900TWIP steel, 2000HPF steel and magnesium (Mg) panel to reduce the vehicle weight. The stainless steel developed by POSCO features high corrosion resistance over general stainless steel. The materials provided by POSCO are said to also enhance fuel efficiency at the same time as reducing weight. The company claims that the new plug-in hybrid is capable of achieving fuel economy of 1 litre per 100 kilometres and emits 22g/km of CO2 on the official NEDC cycle. Apart from POSCO, Renault has worked in collaboration with other key automotive suppliers for the Eolab concept, including Saint-Gobain for glass, Faurecia for seating, floor, and exhaust system, Michelin for tyres, and Continental for brakes. Globally, automakers and suppliers are focusing on the use of advanced materials for weight-reduction solutions that improve the vehicle's fuel efficiency while reducing CO2 emissions. Conventional steel is facing tough competition from aluminium and, to some extent, from magnesium in offering lightweight solutions for automotive use. As a result steel suppliers are gearing up to meet this challenge through the development of high strength and lightweight steel alloys for automotive industry.
