Body-in-White

Body-in-White

In this stage our colleagues weld, rivet, clinch and bond the final contours of the prototypes. 

Our fully integrated dashboard structure contributes to:

  • Increasing the overall stiffness of the chassis, which helps reduce noise & vibration levels in the car. 
  • Transferring the user input more directly to the brake pedal and steering wheel. 

This enables us to improve the driving experience and passenger comfort of Lightyear One.
