Nissan to Use Advanced High Tensile Strength Steel in up to 25 Percent of New Model Parts

Nissan has announced plans to expand their use of Advanced High Tensile Strength Steel (AHSS) starting in 2017.

Stronger, lighter and easy to manufacture, Nissan’s 1.2 gigapascal (GPa) Ultra High Tensile Strength Steel not only will help Nissan lower production costs, it will allow Nissan to make lighter cars, which will enable customers to use less gasoline and produce less CO2.

Already used in the all-new 2014 Infiniti Q50, Nissan plans to increase the use of its high tensile strength steel up to 25% of vehicle parts, resulting up to 15% in weight reduction.
