The Composite Hybrid Automotive Suspension System Innovative Structures (CHASSIS) is a project to develop structural commercial vehicle suspension components in high volume utilising hybrid materials and joining techniques to offer a viable lightweight production alternative to steel. Three components are in scope for the project:-
- Front Subframe
- Front Lower Control Arm (FLCA)
- Rear Deadbeam Axle
