The use of aluminium for key car components can safely reduce their weight by up to 40%.

- 40% WEIGHT

Compared to a steel made car, the maximum weight reduction potential of a car body in aluminium amounts to approximately 40%.


A reduction in weight of the global car fleet by using aluminium can potentially lead to a cut in greenhouse gas emissions by almost 660 million tons yearly, i.e. 9% of global greenhouse gas emissions related to transportation.

The vehicles of the future will be made up of a mix of materials, and aluminium will be the protagonist. The automotive sector has been recently enjoying a particularly favourable growth thanks to a strong growth in casting demand.
