Development status of carbon fiber composites for automobile lightweight abroad
Since the successful manufacture of GM Corvette, the world's first fiber reinforced composite vehicle, in 1953, composite materials have officially stepped on the historical stage in the production of automobile industry. So far, CFRP has become the recognized future development trend of automotive composites.
German BMW is a pioneer in the application of CFRP in the automotive field. In 2008, it announced to bring CFRP into the mainstream of automotive materials; In 2011, Frankfurt Motor Show released I3 electric concept car and I8 hybrid concept sports car for the first time; In 2014, the mass production of I3 and I8 series pure electric vehicles was officially launched in the world, which took an important step towards the commercialization and popularization of carbon fiber products in the field of general motors. On July 1, 2015, the new sixth generation BMW 7 Series car was officially put into production in dingefen factory. All innovations of this model always run through the concept of overall vehicle lightweight. It is the first model in BMW's core products to apply the perfect combination of industrially manufactured carbon fiber materials, high-strength steel and aluminum to the body.
In addition to BMW, Toyota, Volkswagen, Mercedes Benz, Hyundai and other automobile manufacturers are also developing CFRP for vehicle lightweight, which is applied to body, wheel hub, seat, hydrogen cylinder, front compartment cover, chassis structure, transmission shaft and other components.
Application of carbon fiber in refitted vehicles and luxury vehicles
- Modified vehicle
The culture of automobile refitting originates from motor racing. The earliest car modifications were only aimed at improving the performance of the car in order to achieve good results in the race. With the development of the automobile industry and the popularity of car racing, car refitting has long been unveiled, become an integral part of the car life of ordinary car fans, and gradually become a fashion.
Many manufacturers have also begun to provide small components made of carbon fiber materials, such as rearview mirror shell, interior door panel, door handle, gear lever, racing seat, air kit, etc. at the same time, there are many kinds of carbon fiber modified parts such as bellows and intake manifold that can be installed in the engine compartment.
In European countries, the United States and even Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Taiwan of China, car refitting has become a common practice for a long time, "no car, no change" has become the motto of young car fans. The world's famous car refitting companies include AMG, D2, bra bus and Carlsson, which are specially refitted for Mercedes Benz users, acschnitzer for BMW, ABT for Volkswagen and Audi users of Volkswagen, HRC (Honda Racing company) and Mugen (unlimited) for Honda, Tom's and TRD (Toyota Racing Development Department) for Toyota, STI (Fuji World Technology Department) and tein supporting Fuji, Nissan's NISMO (Nissan Automobile Sports Department) and Mitsubishi's professional modification company raliart (rally Art), etc. Famous off-road vehicle refitting companies and supporting product manufacturers include jaos (Japan off road service e), AIBA works, TJM, ARB, warn, etc. Public information shows that the annual turnover of the refitting market in the United States is about US $40 billion.
Affected by national policies, the development of refitted vehicles in China lags behind. The state has always had relevant policies for refitted vehicles. Article 16 of the new road traffic safety law promulgated by the State Council clearly stipulates that no unit or individual shall assemble motor vehicles or change the registered structure, structure or characteristics of motor vehicles without authorization. After modification, some commercial modified vehicles will be inconsistent with the technical parameters of the vehicle, and may not pass the annual inspection and daily traffic inspection. It can be seen that the policy bottleneck is the main reason why the civilian refitted vehicle industry is difficult to achieve greater development.
Thanks to the influence of the extensive development of motor racing, China's refitted cars are also developing slowly in the economically developed areas. At present, China's automobile refitting industry is more developed in Shanghai, Shenzhen, Beijing, Guangzhou, Kunming and other places. In cities where refitting is quite popular, such as Shanghai, refitting has formed a relatively large market. There is a strong demand for refitting products in the Pearl River Delta market in Dongguan, and the refitting market in Zhongshan has begun to take shape.
China's luxury car refitting market has also developed to a certain extent in recent years. The world's largest high-performance Mercedes Benz automobile manufacturer - German Brabus Mercedes Benz Automobile Company and BMW manufacturer AC Schnitzer have successively settled in China. Haman, a premium custom car brand, has also opened a flagship store in Shanghai. Before the financial crisis, the main market of major high-end refitting manufacturers was North America, and the main markets at this stage are the Middle East and the UK. In the future, the Chinese market will become one of the most important markets for luxury modified vehicles.
From the operating conditions of luxury refitting manufacturers, the sales volume of AC Schnitzer in China is about 200-300 vehicles per month, and the sales volume of Eurasian vehicles in China is between 300-400 vehicles throughout the year. It is preliminarily estimated that the annual sales volume of luxury refitting vehicles in China is 5000-8000 units, and the annual consumption of carbon fiber composites is about 100 tons.
- Luxury car
With the overall growth of China's economy, the number of high net worth people with tens of millions of assets in Chinese Mainland is about 1.34 million, driving the growth of sales of luxury cars and top sports cars. In general, luxury cars and top sports cars are the main models for vehicle manufacturers to apply carbon fiber at this stage. The application of general vehicles in the short term is limited by the price factor and has not been opened. According to the use and penetration of each vehicle, the demand for carbon fiber composites in the automotive field will reach 25830 tons by 2018, including 450 tons of top sports cars and 24000 tons of luxury cars.
