Lightweight Design is becoming increasingly important for automotive engineering. Fiber reinforced plastics have a wide range of advantages compared to metal based materials, in addition to the weight-saving aspect. In this study, a wheel of carbon fiber reinforced plastics with an integrated electric motor was developed. The main focus of the development was to achieve the optimum of lightweight potential considering structural durability. During the realization, the technical challenges of multifunctional design were considered in the whole product life cycle. Finally, an outlook regarding the validation of structural durability and system reliability of composite safety components is given, in general.
