Lightweighting is key to CO2 and fuel efficiency compliance
Do you have a gap when it comes to meeting compliance goals?
Do you need to pinpoint future opportunities for mass reduction?
As carmakers are challenged to meet ever-more stringent fuel economy and emissions regulations, it has never been more important for them to reduce the weight in their vehicles. Combined with propulsion improvements, parasitic losses reduction and aerodynamics, lightweighting is the single most important path to closing the compliance gap. The IHS Markit Body-In-White (BIW) Material Forecast provides model by model analysis of all key body components that make up the vehicle. The BIW Forecast:
- Apprises component suppliers on the impact of stiffening legislation
- Enables material suppliers to see new business opportunities or areas they need to defend
- Helps automakers benchmark platforms and consider solutions for meeting compliance gaps
