December 8, 2017 - Constellium N.V. announced that it has strengthened its long-term partnership with Audi to supply aluminium Automotive Body Sheet as well as structural components for the new Audi A7 Sportback. Produced at the Audi Neckarsulm, Germany, plant, the new Audi A7 embodies Audi’s new design language with particularly dynamic lines and a sporty character.

Constellium will be the primary supplier of aluminium Automotive Body Sheet for this new Audi A7 providing the coils to be used for the outer design applications such as the doors, hood, fenders and deck lids which incorporate large surfaces, sharp edges and taut lines. Design and forms are achieved with Constellium’s Surfalex® with high surface quality and specific hemming and roping properties, which allow three-dimensional shapes and is ideally suited for the dynamic body style of this new model. Constellium also supplies aluminium structural components for the Audi A7, including struts and cross members from its plant in Gottmadingen. These custom solutions are designed to meet package space and noise, vibration, and harshness requirements, while contributing to the stiffness of the vehicle.

“We are proud and excited to support Audi in translating their design language for the new generation A7 model with the supply of our special aluminium outer solutions,” said Dieter Hoell, Director Sales and Marketing, Automotive & Specialties. “This reflects the close collaboration we have with our long-time customer Audi, and with their Neckarsulm, Germany, plant, which uses aluminium extensively.”

Thanks to its intrinsic qualities, aluminium is an ideal material for automotive applications allowing the sleekest designs while contributing to customer’s light-weighting programs.
