Twelve exhibition areas and more than fifty sets of parts newly debuted at the forum, including Baosteel ultralight white auto body BCB1.0plus and lightweight seat steel solutions, etc. “World Automotive Steel Alliance” published the Chinese version of “Guide for the application of advanced high strength steel”. The fourth Baosteel Auto Sheet EVI Forum themed with “Green, safety and cost” was held on October 18th with a lot of sparkling highlights, which attracted more than 300 globally renowned automobile and parts manufacturers and more than 800 honored guests from related majors and scientific research institutions to gather here and jointly explore the "Future-oriented solution of steel for automobile".

Baosteel auto sheet started from 1988 and gradually developed. From the production of only ordinary automobile interior plate to mass production of ultra-high strength steel and the global first QP steel, and then to user-centered comprehensive promotion of EVI technical service work, Baosteel automobile sheet has achieved the synchronous rapid development with China automobile industry and entered the stage of strategic transformation "from steel to materials, from manufacturing to service, from China to the world". After years of unremitting efforts, Baosteel has experienced three main stages, including the localization for substitution, quality guarantee and leading automotive steel, automobile sheet yield of Baosteel now is ranked third among the global publicly tradediron and steel enterprises, with the main products of high quality outer plate, high strength steel with years of mature application and ultra-high strength steel with advanced technologies, which occupy more than 50% market share of Chinese auto steel.

This is the first forum after the integration of Baowu. Guests at home and abroad have comprehensively expounded the development of automobile industry, the evolution of automobile materials, the future trend of new energy vehicles and the significance and value of EVI model. Mr. Brook, the director of World Automotive Steel Alliance under the World Steel Association, prospected the development trend of automotive steel; Mr. Hou Fushen, the deputy secretary-general of SAE-China deeply made the speech for future development direction of China automotive technology and new energy automobile development situation; Dr. Wang Jianfeng from GM China introduced the "Application of the third generation of steel and hot stamping in GM automobile".
