Project > Uni-Chassis > Advantages


“The combination of a rigid backbone structure connecting front and rear structures; in combination with the front and rear suspensions affixed to the to the front and rear structures; to create a complete, self-supporting chassis, without the need for a separate frame…."

¤   Weight, cost and investment savings

¤   Battery Box on Plug-in Hybrid and BEVs doubles as the backbone

¤   Adapt different bodies to the same Uni-Chassis™

¤   Uni-Chassis™ is scaleable to different size vehicles by varying backbone length

¤   Uni-Chassis™ is modular, allowing different powertrains within the same architecture

¤   Creates a “rolling chassis” before installation of the body

¤   De-couple chassis loads from body loads

¤   Decouples chassis and body crashworthiness requirements
