The exigent global energy shortage and air pollution problem is also affecting our prosperity. One way to address both of these issues is to make carbon-fuel-utilization more efficient. Vehicle lightweighting is part of the strategy because hundreds of millions of tons of vehicle material are moved around unnecessarily, wasting energy and producing pollution. Revolutionary thinking will have to take place to affect new paradigms starting with ultra- light and ultra-efficient “Near-Zero” emission propulsion plant submitted here this and last year also->http://www.atlasmotorworks.com/dev/index.php and utilization of stronger, lighter, energy extensive, renewable plastics for durable light-weight body.

The power train must be the starting area for lightweighting because it forms the basis for subsequent weight reductions in other areas. Our wheel mounted ...
