The automotive industry is undergoing a period of tremendous transformation, driven by demands for lighter, stronger, and more fuel-efficient vehicles. 

For instance, Jaguar Land Rover is preparing for future electric vehicles with advanced lightweight composite research that they say will deliver increased range and provide greater performance. The Tucana project is a four-year programme to make the UK a world leader in low-carbon technology, helping prevent 4.5 million tonnes of CO2 emissions between 2023 and 2032 by accelerating mainstream use of electric vehicles and making vehicles lighter to both decrease tailpipe emissions and reduce the energy consumption of electrified powertrains.
