Lightweight: aluminium is four times lighter than steel.
Fuel economy: the huge weight advantage of aluminium over steel improves performance. An all-aluminium vehicle will have a smaller engine and fuel tank than its steel equivalent. This 10% weight reduction in the vehicle boosts fuel efficiency by over 8%.
Strong: aluminium is 2.5 times stronger than steel.
Safer: aluminium reacts differently to other metals, absorbing twice the energy of steel in the event of an accident.
Abundant: aluminium is one of the most plentiful and readily obtainable metals in the world, although it is currently difficult to extract and expensive to process.
Non-corrosive: aluminium does not rust.
Recyclable: and more environmentally friendly than other metals. Non-corrosive: aluminium does not rust.
Improves reliability: and reduces assembly costs by reducing the number of parts required to make the body of the vehicle.
