"Roding Carbon Cell" – Patented, Modular Passenger Compartment Made of CFRP

Light, stable, safe.

Roding Automobile GmbH is committed to modern lightweight construction, without compromising safety and rigidity. On the contrary -  no other material protects the occupants of a vehicle in a crash more reliably than a chassis made of CFRP (Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic). Weighing merely 75kg, the ultra-light CFRP "Roding Carbon Cell" also scores points in terms of energy efficiency and is becoming increasingly important in electric mobility.


CFRP passenger compartment as a platform module

With our patented "Roding Carbon Cell", we offer a proven and tested, modular passenger compartment made of CFRP (Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic) as vehicle and development platform to OEMs and automotive suppliers. The platform is already in use for prototypes or as a vehicle platform in the small and medium series. The "Roding Carbon Cell" can be customised during vehicle construction. Integration of our modular CFRP passenger compartment contributes to the economic implementation of new vehicle derivatives in a short development time. In addition, we ensure fast and accurate vehicle assembly with maximum functional integration.


Ultra-light CFRP monocoque platform

Made entirely of fibre-reinforced plastic, the "Roding Carbon Cell" weighs only 75kg. The CFRP chassis is produced in our own carbon production in 14 parts, either in RTM (Resin Transfer Moulding) or prepreg shell construction. The "Roding Carbon Cell" is primarily suitable for the construction of 2-seater vehicle platforms. We also build larger vehicle platforms, based on our patented chassis system.


"Roding Carbon Cell": Lightweight chassis of the Roding Roadster

We originally developed the "Roding Carbon Cell" for our lightweight sports car – Roding Roadster. The resulting lightness (kerb weight of 950 kg) and rigidity are the essentials which ensure precise handling and the direct driving pleasure of the sports car.
