Ford Going Nano

Ford intends to use nanotechnology in order to improve fuel consumption and reduce vehicle weight. The company is currently developing a thin, thermally sprayed nano-coating that is both wear-resistant and much lighter than the cast iron liners that are being used in cars today. By 2020, Ford plans to improve fuel efficiency by as much as 40 percent, by using nanotechnology to develop paints, plastics, light metals, and catalysts to produce lighter vehicles.
