Release date- 29062016 - Troy, Mich- Now in its fourth year, the Altair Enlighten Award has received 21 global nominations for the 2016 award, with seven OEM full vehicle and fourteen supplier module submissions in all.

The award which recognizes and celebrates achievements in vehicle lightweighting will be presented in collaboration with the Center for Automotive Research (CAR) at the 2016

CAR Management Briefing Seminars taking place in Traverse City, Mich. from August 1st-4th.

This year's award program added new categories to help highlight the innovative lightweighting strategies being implemented for both full vehicles and modules such as components, systems and enabling technologies to acknowledge achievements in vehicle lightweighting. Comprised of worldwide automotive experts, the awards judging committee - chaired by Dr. Jay Baron, President and CEO of CAR and Director of CAR's Coalition for Automotive Lightweighting Material (CALM) - will assess each nomination and select the overall winner.

'It is impressive to see such significant effort by the supplier community with terrific enabling technologies making a difference in advanced lightweighting,' said Jay Baron, 'and the competition for full vehicle nominations demonstrates just how far vehicle manufacturers have succeeded in applying new solutions throughout the vehicle to reduce weight while maintaining safety and performance.'

The 2016 Enlighten Award nominees for full vehicle are:

BMW: 2016 7 Series

CSR Bus: 2016 TEG 6129 BEV

Ford Motor Company: 2017 Ford F-350 Super Duty

General Motors: 2016 Cadillac CT6

General Motors: 2017 Cadillac XT5

ISUZU: 2015 SML Bus

Volvo Eicher Commercial Vehicle Ltd: Heavy Duty Truck

The 2016 Enlighten Award nominees for modules are:

ContiTech: Rear Suspension Polymide Cross Member for Mercedes S Class

Dicastal: Honda Civic Wheel Structure Optimization

'The increase in submissions coming from the OEMs for full-vehicle lightweighting will make for an exciting competition this year. I expect as we draw closer to the 2025 CAFE standards we will continue to see more dramatic weight reduction tactics implemented by OEMs,' said Richard Yen, Senior Vice President of Automotive at Altair. It's also been exciting seeing the huge variety of nominations coming from suppliers who are tackling the challenge of vehicle lightweighting in such varied ways. I think 2016 will be the most competitive year in the award's history.'

The Altair Enlighten Award is intended to honor the greatest achievements in weight savings each year; to inspire interest from industry, engineering, policymakers, educators, students and the public; to create further competition for new ideas in the industry; and to provide an incentive to share technological advances.

The award aligns with the goals of CAR's CALM initiative to support the cost-effective integration of mixed materials to achieve significant reductions in vehicle mass through the collaborative efforts of the material sectors and auto manufacturers.
