Designing the Body of the Car for Maximum Fuel Efficiency

The environmental protection agency (EPA) states that by 2025 cars must be designed to travel at 54.5 miles per gallon. How are auto manufacturers planning on designing cars to meet these standards and deadline? This infographic from ANSYS provides answers this question and more. This informative illustration reviews what aspects of a car's design effects fuel efficiency today, the carbon footprint that more fuel efficient cars leave behind and how engineering simulation is the new method to engineer cars.
