NATURE’S WAY TO MOBILITY

 

FutureSteelVehicle takes green vehicles to a whole new level.  A light weight Advanced High-Strength Steel body structure combined with electrified powertrains reduces total life cycle greenhouse gas emissions by up to 70%, without blowing the budget.  A complete set of engineering reports tells how.

Why Use LCA?

This brief animation gives a simple explanation about what life cycle assessment is and why it’s important for measuring vehicle carbon footprint.

RETHINK EMISSIONS

 

We believe that the only way to truly low emissions vehicles is to evaluate emissions over the entire life cycle—a life cycle assessment.  Measuring only tailpipe emissions will eventually leave half of vehicle emissions unaccounted for and unregulated.  LCA is the best way to a smaller vehicle carbon footprint.  Learn about it.

Life Cycle Assessment Sees The Big Picture [VIDEO]

Without a life cycle assessment to guide the design process, decisions will be made that could result in unintended consequences: a complete shift of the emissions problem to the manufacturing of the vehicle, with no impact or even an increase in total lifetime emissions reduction.  This short video tells you why life cycle assessment is […]
