Abstract

Lightweight materials and design have always been an important topic in product design across several industries.The design of modern vehicle must meet many requirements in terms of transport performances, comfort, active and passive safety, power consumption and costs, quality and reliability, environmental impact and end-of-life destination. The purpose of this research is to investigate the contribution of lightweight materials toward overall design of an electric vehicle (Buggy Cart) and to evaluate the economic manufacturing process of the materials used from a life cycle perspective as well as its ecological impact of its materialization and manufacturing process. The study will focus on main part of the design such as base parts of the design and to achieve the objective of the study, several analysis tool will be used approximately. The shapes of the each studied parts played the the biggest role in determining the material indices that will became the objective of translating the material and process selection based onAshby and Cambrigde Engineering Selector EduPack 2012,(CES). The main body parts of the design contributes the most in the design weigh reduction but and also contribute low in CO2 footprint production in primary production process. The objectives of the study can be said to has achieved since many informational data has been retrieved in this study.
