According to the Plastics Market Watch Automotive Series, “Standards from the Federal Corporate Avg. Fuel Economy (CAFE) have guided designing & engineering of motor vehicles for over 40 years. These standards set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) & National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) promotes lighter vehicles & fuel conserving engine & drivetrain production. The Obama Administration in 2012 updated the standards to 54.5 mile per gallon for cars & light-duty trucks by 2025. When combined with previous standards, this almost doubles the fuel efficiency of the vehicles in the next (9) years.  Today, auto manufacturers are working on the CAFE standards for cars & light trucks for the 2011–2016 model years requiring the equivalent of 35.5 miles per gallon.

These newer CAFE goals have support among both auto manufacturers & environmentalists. There are thirteen big automakers that make up for more than 90% of all vehicles sold in the US. These new mileage standards from the EPA & NHTSA force automakers to increase efficiency and develop technologies to transform their auto fleets, including advancements in gasoline engines, transmissions, car weight reduction, lower resistance, improvements  relating to aerodynamics, and improvements in auto A/C systems. The next-gen automobiles are employing plastics technology, such as carbon fiber usage for both interior & exterior components. BMW which has spent millions in the development of carbon fiber-related options is using them in a wide variety of vehicles. For the newer entrants to the vehicle arena, such as Tesla, finding the ideal material for the undercarriage & body panels was certainly a priority. Tesla confirmed its lighter-weight carbon fiber/epoxy blend of composite (2) years prior to finalizing it. Tesla twists long, slim carbon fiber strands within a fabric, which is molded with both plastic and resin.” For the report viewable in its entirety, visit
