GenericCar_YellowThis Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) follows up on the findings of the WorldAutoSteel study, A New Paradigm for Automotive Mass Benchmarking, which explored the current production vehicle data provided in the A2Mac1 teardown database.  Using statistical benchmarking regression models, the initial study identified those components that were lighter than others of the same size and performance in the database, called the efficient designs.  We followed up to see how these efficient efficient steel and efficient aluminium body structure designs stack up in terms of their life cycle improvement over average body structure designs.  The results are interesting.  Read and download the case study and infographic >>>
