From increased fuel economy and reduced carbon emissions to crash protection without compromise and enhanced driving performance, Alcoa aluminum builds a better car, truck or trailer. All other factors being equal, lighter cars accelerate faster, stop faster, and have better handling – that’s why many top performance cars are all-aluminum.
Aluminum's light-weight saves fuel costs. For every 10% reduction in vehicle weight, there is a 5-7% fuel savings. Alcoa aluminum provides even greater benefits to hybrid vehicles with advanced powertrains, improving fuel economy by 13.5% compared to an equivalent hybrid vehicle comprised of steel.
Alcoa aluminum is infinitely recyclable and contributes to significant reductions in CO2 emissions. Using a larger percentage of aluminum reduces the overall weight of the vehicle, which significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions associated with global warming.
