    Nissan to make future cars lighter with advanced steel construction

    Japanese automaker Nissan has recently announced that it will be making more of its future car models with a new type of steel, which combines high tensile strength along with a degree of formability that was previously unattainable. Nissan has said that this new way of construction will result in lighter vehicles, which will also partially help in lowering the emission levels of the cars as well.

    The usage of high-formability steel to make cars will make Nissan the first automaker to do so. This new type of steel comes with a tensile strength of 980 megapascals, and was co-developed by Nissan and Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corp. This steel's ability of stamping formability as well as strength will enable the Japanese car maker to form auto parts with complex shapes which are lighter and thinner as compared against those constructed out of conventional high tensile strength steel. Moreover, the high-formability steel will be maintaining the optimum ability to absorb the energy on the event of a collision as well.
