The LSEV 3D-printed electric-powered car will likely get into production in 2019, the car was lately introduced at a press conference organized in China.
The LSEV is a product of a partnership between Polymaker and XEV. As outlined by Polymaker, all noticeable parts of the automobile except the chassis, car seats and car windows are 3D-printed. Using this process apparently authorized the total number of different components to be lowered from a standard 2,000 to merely 57 – that most likely does not come with the drivetrain. Moreover, it made possible a claimed full vehicle weight of only 450 kgs.
Another benefit of 3D printing is that it significantly enhanced the research and advancement procedure, enabling XEV to finish new styles in only 3 to 12 months – Polymaker claims that the R&D procedure for a similar conventionally-created vehicle takes more like 3 to 5 years.
