Research on Energy Consumption for Improving Light Vehicle Manufacturing Technology of Automotive Industry in China

Abstract:

Article Preview

It has become the theme of the times to save energy and protect environment, since the environment has been deteriorating and energy crisis has been increasingly nervous. The trend is the development of automotive lightweight direction, because of the close relationship among energy consumption and vehicle manufacturing and using cost. In this article, the automotive industry to use the material is still main traditional material of iron and steel high-energy through a statistical analysis of the automotive industry energy consumption. Furthermore, the method was described that the use of lightweight environmentally friendly materials to promote lightweight manufacturing technology in the automotive industry based on the statistical analysis of the automotive industry energy consumption. A new era is coming with automotive materials development. The research and application of lightweight materials on new car will become the focus of future vehicle development.
