Domestic policies and measures for automobile lightweight
In September 2015, the China Automotive Engineering Association pointed out in China Automotive lightweight Development that 2018-2020 will be the second important stage in the development of automobile lightweight industry. Enterprises will reduce the weight of domestic passenger vehicles by 7% on the basis of 2017. Medium trucks, trailers and large buses have lost more than 5%, and medium and light commercial vehicles have lost more than 10%.
In December 2016, through the conscientious implementation of Made in China 2025, the innovation and development of automotive equipment manufacturing and new materials industry has been vigorously promoted, automotive lightweight technology and lightweight new materials have become an important direction for the development of energy-saving and new energy automotive industry.
On September 28, 2017, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Commerce, the General Administration of Customs and the General Administration of quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine jointly announced the Measures for Parallel Management of average fuel consumption and New Energy Vehicle Points of Passenger Vehicle Enterprises.

International policies and measures for automobile lightweight
In 2007, the U.S. Department of Energy and the Department of Transportation jointly stipulated that by 2020, the U.S. automotive industry must reduce its fuel consumption by 41% compared with the current level, prompting enterprises to actively develop new technologies and continue to launch energy-efficient vehicles. The European Union has stipulated that the carbon emissions of new passenger vehicles sold in the EU will be 95g / km by 2020, and the world’s 11 major OEMs will begin to reduce their weight.
