As automotive fuel economy, battery range and carbon footprint become critical areas of focus for the industry and its customers, automotive aluminum will continue to play a vital role in the design and engineering of cars and light trucks. The ATG continues to promote research and programs that highlight the positive efficiency, safety, durability, vehicle performance and environmental benefits of the metal, as well as its increasing growth in transportation applications.

Stakeholders in the commercial vehicle industry are also facing several challenges today from rising energy costs, a weak economy and the growing concern over greenhouse gas emissions. As federal safety mandates continue to add weight to heavy-duty vehicles, there has never been a better time for manufacturers, fleet and owner-operators, shippers and legislators to begin exploring the options that alternative material choices offer. The ATG communicates the benefits of downweighting with aluminum, including the ability to increase payload capacity; lower maintenance costs; reduce fuel consumption; reduce greenhouse gas emissions; improve durability; and produce a higher resale value.
