Lightweight Engineering

With a extensive range of expertise and capabilities, we provide a holistic approach to Lightweight Engineering.

We support you at all stages of your product's development to create a mass efficient vehicle composed of lightweight components

Driving the Future: Unleashing the Potential of Lightweight Engineering in E-Mobility Excellence

In the dynamically evolving e-mobility landscape, we recognise the vital importance of lightweighting. Our expertise extends to proactive and accurate mass control, a critical aspect in achieving not only reduced weight, but also a wide range of benefits for electric vehicles. The adoption of lightweight materials and creative design strategies intrinsically improve key performance parameters such as energy efficiency, ride, handling, braking, acceleration and plays a central role in extending the range of electric vehicles.

Proactive and precise mass monitoring are integral to achieving optimised vehicle mass, ensuring a harmonious design that seamlessly integrates efficiency with top-tier safety and performance.

From concept to vehicle study to production-ready product. Shape the future of mobility with RLE! We support you with:

  • Optimisation of vehicle mass
  • Reduction of mass through design efficiency and material selection
  • Benchmarking of competitor vehicle and system masses
  • Determination of vehicle mass and CoG forecast during the development phase
  • Certification of vehicle mass at the end of development
