“High strength climate contribution”


For a smaller vehicle the savings are smaller. In this scenario, 170 kg of Docol® 800 high strength steel replaces 200 kg of 500 MPa material in the chassis. And in the crash components, 85 kg of Docol® 1400 steel replaces 100 kg of 1,000 MPa material. This means a total weight reduction of 15% for the upgraded parts, i.e. 45 kgs, which reduces the car’s fuel consumption by approximately 1.3%.
