Nanotech innovations have been gathering pace in recent months in the automotive industry as the use of nanomaterials in coatings, composites and energy systems aids the continued development of lighter, more environmentally friendly automobiles.
The automotive industry has utilized nanomaterials in coatings and composites for over a decade. Automotive giant Ford has announced that it will become the first automaker to use graphene parts in its mass manufactured vehicles (the technology has already been used in various prototypes), beginning with the Mustang and F-150 by the end of 2018.
