The new structures made of high-steel located in modern vehicles are ensuring that cars are much more durable than they once were. Enhanced durability leads to higher amounts of longevity, which is something any consumer would love to invest in. Some examples of auto companies using high-steel in their manufacturers are Volkswagen’s 2019 Jetta and its hot-formed steel, as well as the 2020 Toyota Corolla with its torsional rigidity due to the implimentatio of high-steel.
- Advanced high strength steel is increasingly being preferred by automakers for their cars as is seen by the number of 2019 models released this year.
- High strength steel being used in areas like the body of the car will ensure the car is more durable and has improved occupant protection.
- The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta model is composed of 35% ultra-high strength steel while the 2020 Corolla boasts of 60% in torsion thanks to the use ultra-high tensile steel.
“In fact, in a survey conducted earlier this year by the institute, 90% of consumers said they believe steel is stronger than other materials used by automakers.”
