Advanced Light materials
for electric vehicles

About Levis Project

LEVIS, short for Advanced Light materials for sustainable Electrical Vehicles by Integration of eco-design and circular economy Strategies, is a HORIZON 2020 project funded by the European Union under the H2020-LC-GV-2018-2019-2020 Building a low-carbon, climate resilient future: Green Vehicles call.

LEVIS’ aim is to develop lightweight components for electric vehicles using eco-design and circular approaches. Our consortium – built by industrial and research partners from seven countries – envisages to demonstrate the technical and economic feasibility of producing these components in three real-case demonstrators at a large scale: a suspension arm, a battery box set and a cross car beam.

Challenge and our proposal

As electrical cars are powered by heavy-weight batteries, car manufacturers and suppliers must search for new light-weighting technologies to compensate this excess weight in other car components.
