An interview with Marcus Henry, Research Manager, and Frederic Sicard, Technical Specialist Composite Material & Process, at Jaguar Land Rover Ltd.
TUCANA is an enabler for future Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) demonstrated by redesign of the whole rear body structure of a Jaguar I-Pace.
With this innovation, Jaguar Land Rover was awarded in the Automotive & Road Transportation - Structural category. Unlike traditional fabric-based manufacture using RTM or Autoclave technology which are not viable for a high volume (40,000+ unit per annum) cycle time nor a business case point of view, TUCANA focused on optimizing the use of material and maximizing the MPa/kg.
