The EDAG Light Cocoon is a visionary lightweight vehicle concept with bionically optimised and additively manufactured (3D print) vehicle structural parts. The skeleton-like, organic vehicle structure is extremely lightweight, uses minimal materials, and meets all static and dynamic component requirements. The outer skin is composed of a high-tech textile, the lightest possible surface material. As a result, the body lighting makes the bionic skeleton visible, and gives rise to impressive light scenarios that can be used for a number of purposes, for example, to greet the driver. To conclude, the EDAG Light Cocoon demonstrates a way of producing structural vehicle parts that will weigh 30% less than that produced with conventional construction methods. This bionical concept car heralds a paradigm shift in vehicle development.
