|Why is weight reduction one of the most efficient means to reduce CO2 emissions from vehicles?|
It has been estimated that up to 80% of the CO2 emissions over the complete life cycle of a vehicle are generated during its use phase. Considering that the weight reduction directly reduces the fuel consumption, hence the related CO2 emissions, because the energy required to move a vehicle is directly proportional to its mass, it is clear that the weight reduction is a very efficient way to reduce the total emissions from a vehicle considering its entire life cycle. At the same time, the reduced vehicle mass enables significant safety improvements as well as better driving performance and higher comfort.
