Ford Excels in fuel efficiency through car bonnet design
The new design is made of carbon fibre and weighs 50 percent less than previous versions and, as an added bonus, can be manufactured via existing production machines in their assembly plants.
Already, the bonnet has been tested so that it meets standards for performance, stiffness and, of course, crash performance. The bonnet also adds to pedestrian safety levels due to a foam layer inside it.
This technology could well be seen on vehicles at your nearest Ford car dealerships across the world, further enhancing Ford's reputation as a motor manufacturer.
