Bevolt features a carbon fiber monocoque, which requires a rigorous design including analysis, simulation, and physical validation. The more advanced materials present challenges not normally encountered when designing a traditional aluminum or steel chassis. The team is definitely up for the challenge, incorporating our own ideas with advice from industry professionals.
