LONDON — A large north American vehicle manufacturer will use ArcelorMittal SA’s steels in its lightweight vehicles, Prabhat Rastogi, the steelmaker’s worldwide sales and marketing manager, said April 24.

The manufacturer couldn’t be named, Rastogi told delegates at the Global Automotive Lightweight Materials conference in London.

But the vehicle designs will make use of ArcelorMittal’s advanced high-strength steels (AHSS).

The material is part of ArcelorMittal’s Sustainability In Motion package, which offers a variety of options for reducing the weight of vehicles in order to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

Germany’s Volkswagen AG in November decided to use ArcelorMittal’s steels in its lightweight vehicle models, with several components of the automaker’s new designs manufactured using a press-hardened steel with an aluminium-silicon coating from the Luxembourg-based steelmaker’s.
