Go Further with Aluminum

Auto aluminum reduces carbon dioxide emissions, increases fuel economy and extends EV range.

When high-strength, lightweight advanced aluminum alloys replace steel, vehicles can keep or even increase their size, while still cutting weight. The less a car or truck weighs, the less fuel or battery power is needed to move it, extending range and reducing tailpipe carbon emissions (and emissions at every stage of a vehicle’s life).

We asked astronaut Dan Tani to help explain how automotive aluminum helps reduce CO2 emissions.
