In modern era, lightweight vehicles have become extremely important due to a number of factors. When the mass is larger, more energy is needed to move it. More mass means more power would be needed from the engine to speed up and keep the vehicle moving, and thus require to burn more fuel as well. However, reducing the mass not only improves fuel consumption, but also reduces the amount of emissions produced.
These days advanced materials are considered essential for boosting the fuel economy of modern automobiles while maintaining safety and performance. Since it takes less energy to accelerate a lighter object than a heavier one, lightweight materials offer great potential for increasing vehicle efficiency. According to research, a 10% reduction in vehicle weight can result in a 6% to 8% improvement in fuel economy.
