When looking to what the cars of the future are going to be, we often forget about what is being used to make them and focus instead on what is being used to power them. But at the Automotive News Green Car Conference, researchers deemed aluminum to be the most cost-effective material to be used in building cars of the future. Not only will the lighter material help in the areas of fuel economy, but also reduced emissions, improved safety, and a higher rate of recyclability. Although aluminum has been used in auto manufacturing since the 1990s, expect to see a much bigger percentage of its usage in the coming years.
