Due to the impact of electric vehicles battery weight and battery life mileage, body weight loss than traditional cars urgent, in automotive lightweight material, aluminum alloy material comprehensive cost-effective than steel, magnesium, plastics and composites, regardless of technology or application running safety and recycling use has a comparative advantage, the rapid development of domestic and foreign automotive aluminum is enough to prove it. Electric car parts are mainly aluminum body, wheels, chassis, bumper beams, floors, seats and battery power. Making body comprising high-performance aluminum frame and body made of high precision aluminum skin and doors; aluminum alloy wheels (cast aluminum wheels or forged aluminum wheels); chassis including high strength aluminum structural parts and large cross-section aluminum alloy forgings ; profiles for the production of bumper beams bumper; new energy bus floor; aluminum ion batteries and lithium ion batteries. Lithium-ion batteries including battery cathode foil, aluminum and batteries battery aluminum tray (Europe battery tray all aluminum alloy material, both domestic battery tray aluminum alloy, but also stainless steel); new energy bus seat systems. Aluminum alloy material used in electric cars, car prices vary depending on the concept design different models vary, all-aluminum body electric vehicles will be a large amount, it is a relatively small amount of other electric vehicles. Some cars purchase their own processing aluminum parts, some car companies are purchasing aluminum manufactures parts and then assembled directly on-line. It is worth mentioning that, at present, China's fiscal subsidies for electric vehicles, new energy vehicles some foreign brand manufacturers in order to share the preferential policies, while optimistic about the Chinese consumer market electric vehicles, plans to invest in China factory building electric cars foreign brands of electric cars aluminum large amount of material costs driven factors, the nearest part of the domestic procurement of aluminum or aluminum parts.
