Webinar Day 2 | Vehicle Lightweighting Conference | Autocar Professional


The virtual event brought together industry CXOs to drive conversations around lightweighting and the advanced materials, and production technology to achieve sustainability, and enhance safety in vehicles.

With tightening emission norms and a sharper focus on vehicle safety, the global automotive industry is cutting the kilos and shaving grams off in its continuing quest to innovate and produce more efficient vehicles.

Lightweighting has emerged as a key methodology to slash vehicle weight, and the engineering mantra not only enhances fuel efficiency, particularly important in the era of Corporate Average Fuel Efficiency or CAFE norms that govern several global markets, including India.
