Enhancing Performance, Safety and Design
Novelis aluminum empowers automakers to meet ever-increasing fuel efficiency and emissions standards while also delivering vital performance, safety and design solutions.
Compared to other competing materials, aluminum has a clear advantage in strength-to-weight ratio. In fact, aluminum is the only metal that can achieve dramatic weight loss while increasing fuel efficiency and providing equal or better quality, strength and durability. In addition, the rigidity of aluminum structures gives drivers a better feel for the road, more precise control, better stability and quicker responsiveness.
By leveraging the impressive qualities of aluminum and working closely with automakers, Novelis also helps automotive designers create more unique vehicle designs with better handling, increased visibility and more cargo space than ever before.
Jaguar Land Rover
With new consumer demands and increasing government regulations in many areas of the world, factors such as fuel economy and greenhouse gas emissions are no longer secondary considerations. Car manufacturers around the globe are looking for ways to make cars lighter and more fuel-efficient, while maintaining performance, design, safety and strength.
As the world’s largest recycler of aluminum, Novelis leverages aluminum’s unique properties to deliver sustainable solutions that help automakers appeal to consumers and meet government regulations – all while reducing environmental impact and driving cost efficiencies. Together with our partners, we have created the world’s largest closed-loop recycling system, which allows us to take back as much of our customers’ aluminum scrap as possible, directly turning it back into the same product again.
