Vehicle mass reduction (light-weighting)

Recent years have seen the publication of numerous benefit and cost studies, by the ICCT and other organizations, on light-duty vehicle technologies in the United States, Europe, and China. These analyses, together with studies conducted by public agencies such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration, provide a necessary foundation for any assessment of light-duty vehicle technology development over the coming decade.

The list below, sorted by authoring organization, links to mass reduction or vehicle lightweighting studies. For a similar collection of resources on cost curves, see here.
