•    Description:  The Automotive Life-Cycle Assessment Model is a tool developed by a group of aluminum and automotive industry experts for calculating the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that can be saved through lightweighting of passenger cars. It enables comparison of a baseline automobile model (employing a mild steel structure and body) with alternative lightweight options, using either aluminum, advanced high strength steel (AHSS), or a combination of the two. This article presents an overview of he recent updates and refinements to the model made in 2019, as well as presenting two case studies of hypothetical models that assess mass reduction in a vehicle by comparing specific examples of a mild steel component versus an aluminum sheet or AHSS component.
