Through innovative research and development projects, including joining, forming, etc., the Auto/Steel Partnership helps automakers design vehicles that feature the next generation of advanced high-strength steel (AHSS) technologies. With greater formability and manufacturability, these affordable AHSS components are lighter and stronger, contributing to more fuel-efficient vehicles.
