LCA in Automotive Ecodesign

LCA is specifically important in assessing lightweighting concepts to improve environmental impact. In general, we can expect that lower vehicle weights can be associated with lower environmental impacts, as lighter vehicles will require less energy to move and using less materials should then also decrease the impact during manufacturing. However, this is not always the case, as reducing the weight can come with materials choices that have production methods with more emissions than the ones they replace.
