As light as a feather. Okay, it isn’t realistic for a car to be that light. But modern materials can help to significantly reduce the weight of vehicles. So they use less fuel and are more environmentally friendly. 

In the automotive industry, composites are becoming a serious alternative to traditional substrates like steel and aluminum. Composites offer greater design flexibility, a higher strength-to-weight ratio, and a better chemical and heat impact resistance. Using composite materials in the automotive industry can reduce vehicle weight by up to 35%, thus significantly reducing fuel consumption. The most popular composites are SMC (Sheet Molding Compound) and BMC (Bulk Molding Compound). These are Glass Fibre Reinforced Polyesters with a proven history as an engineering composite with unique qualities.
