Assembly of the all-new Range Rover at the Jaguar Land Rover manufacturing facility in Solihull, U.K., showing the aluminum stamped side structure. The 2013 Range Rover is now the first SUV with an all-aluminum body structure. Novelis supplied AC-300 alloy aluminum sheet for body structural components in crash relevant areas, including the longitudinal beams in the front end assembly, the reinforcements of the underbody, and structural components in the rear end of the vehicle. For more information about the use of aluminum in the new Range Rover, and other light vehicles, see page 32. (Photo: ©Jaguar Land Rover)
