The thyssenkrupp blue.cruiser features more steel components than ever. Among others, it contains lightweight elements as part of the body, electrical steel inside the motor, and high-tech components in the chassis. The vehicle’s high level of sustainability results from a life-cycle analysis of the environmental influences exerted by production, service life, and recycling.
Using steel instead of CFRP and aluminum has significantly reduced the vehicle’s greenhouse gas emissions. Alternative materials both on the interior (such as linen and pineapple leather) and the exterior (such as balsa wood and bio resin as laminate substitutes) also help to reduce the thyssenkrupp blue.cruiser’s environmental impact.
