Kordsa Supports Turkish Electric Vehicle Team

Kordsa provided composite materials support to the Kocaeli University Türk Mekatronik Team, winner of the Design Category at the TÜBİTAK Efficiency Challenge Electric Vehicle competition in August.

Carbon fibre fabric produced by Kordsa was used in the interior, inner and outer door, chassis, suspension and instrument panel of the second vehicle developed and produced by the Türk Mekatronik Team.

The electric vehicle, designed in accordance with the requirements of the competition, is 3.5 m long, 1,7 m wide and 1 m high. The team, which previously produced a 430 kg single-motor electric vehicle, succeeded in reducing the weight of the new dual-motor vehicle by 45% to 240 kg.
