Lighter cars, less emissions

Lightweight automotive body parts prove that we can help reduce emissions and fuel consumption whilst driving.

Together, with our partners, our research and innovations are driving the development of automotive solutions, which are helping automakers address today's, and tomorrow's, challenges such as emissions reduction, heat management, e-mobility, lightweight construction and fuel efficiency. From helping create modern, durable car exteriors that meet both design and functionality requirements, to long-lasting coatings and plastics that enable lighter-weight materials, our innovations continue to improve the aesthetics and build quality of cars. With BASF products, the production of these components is also simpler and less expensive.
