Smarter steels have a central role to play in this new world of mobility. Given the inherent strength of these advanced materials, cars today can be both lighter and safer. Steel can also make electric drivetrains more efficient. And it’s endlessly recyclable. We’re committed to helping the automotive industry build a better world with smarter steels.
The material that drives change
Over two-thirds of a car is typically made of steel. With focused innovation, this highly versatile material is evolving to meet the needs of the automotive industry as it transitions to carbon-neutral mobility.
Today, we’ve made steels that are up to five times stronger than they were 20 years ago, so cars can be lighter, yet remain strong and safe. Our innovative electrical steels help electric motors to offer better range, efficiency and acceleration. And smarter steel solutions are protecting batteries and providing chassis for electric vehicles.
Innovation centred around the customer
ArcelorMittal invests industry-leading sums in R&D to create new steels, steel solutions and steel-making processes. Everything we do has a laser focus on our customers and their quest for materials that offer better performance and sustainability. It’s part of our commitment to supporting manufacturers’ ambitions to create carbon-neutral mobility. And to ensure our innovations match their changing needs, we embed resident engineers at our customers’ design and engineering facilities.
