Engineering the future - Rethinking car body manufacturing

What does the body of the future look like?

The world’s leading car manufacturer, Volkswagen corporation, is constantly working to develop new manufacturing methodes and processes. Joining of different materials and components is highly complex. The use of a wide variety of joining processes creats enormous expense in production. For this reason, Volkswagen corporation is looking for new concepts for a body with lower joint complexity, which can be mass produced.
How could such a body look like? Which new joining methods can be used? How can classic joining methods be reduced?

Submit your idea and help Volkswagen corporation to develop a new automotive body concept in which the joining effort is significantly reduced!
