We want to further advance lightweight design in an ecological direction.Dr. Lutz-Eike Elend, Head of the Audi Lightweight Design Centre
Fundamental to successful lightweight design are development and research with new materials. For Audi, it is not just the weight or properties of a material that count, but also the sustainability of its production and processing. For example, developers at the Audi Lightweight Design Centre are currently working with biopolymers – fibres that are obtained from waste materials in the wood industry. Good initial results have already been obtained here.
