dc.description.abstractBased on Pininfarina Nido EV concept, EVolution aims to reduce the vehicle weight through new materials and process technologies, focused on five demonstrators: underbody, front crossbeam, mechanical subframe, shotgun system and door. This paper refers to body structure design strategies using new composite, Al materials and enabled technologies, focusing in particular on demonstrators design and manufacturing. The new front crossbeam geometry of the front shell is adapted starting from the Nanotough design, while the rear shell is specific for EVolution. The subframe demonstrator is redesigned to fulfil mechanical requirements of the part and manufacturing feasibility either. The EVolution door concept consists of two semistructural composite skins including a structural Al frame. The underbody is conceived through an integrated approach, optimising each element for its function. The shotgun component is designed to link parts obtained with different manufacturing technologies and several aluminium alloys in one single component: the structural node demonstrator.en
