Future mobility applications are characterized by a high level of resource efficiency due to the application of novel lightweight materials and function-integrating, multi-material design concepts. Textile thermoplastic composites in particular pave the way for lightweight components characterized by highly specific mechanical properties and efficient production processes. This essay presents the strategy pursued by the Collaborative Research Centre SFB 639 "Textile-reinforced composite components for function-integrating multi-material design in complex lightweight applications", a concept for the holistic analysis of complex process chains for hybrid yarn textile thermoplastic (HYTT) composites and the idea behind the innovative FiF electric mobility technology demonstrator vehicle. © 2016 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
