New vehicles design is increasingly searching for performance solutions linked to materials and fuel consumption. On the one hand, there is the need for continuously improving engine efficiency in order to cut fuel consumption and reduce CO2 emissions. On the other, finding lighter high-performance materials to reduce vehicles’ weight. Fuel consumption and materials, a formula that in recent years has led to the development of design solutions able to deliver crucial improvements in fuel consumption.  So, many car manufacturers have started to develop and use eco-friendly materials, often trying new ones, either bio-based or recycled. These design solutions, adopted by several car manufacturers, are proof that something has really changed. While respecting strict safet...
