Improving automobile fuel efficiency - with plastics
While most Americans know that drastically improving automobile fuel efficiency will reduce gasoline consumption and tailpipe emissions, it may be less clear how today’s cars and trucks are evolving to make that happen.
The U.S. government recently announced stringent new Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards: the nation’s cars and light trucks must average a whopping 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025. The standards not only will help reduce auto emissions, but they also could save some serious cash at the pump.
So how will automakers meet these goals? Through more aerodynamic design, improved engine efficiency – and a greater reliance on plastics. That’s right, plastics.
