The presentation looked at concepts that were developed during the creation of the Formtech E1 EV research concept vehicle.  We approached the development from the ground up looking at the issues surrounding design and manufacturing of composite structures drawing on previous work.  Our previous work into the substitution of composites in Formula One was used to drive our thinking in substitution in the automotive industry.
