Sažetak
The trends of development and usage of materials in automotive industry were investigated. The major efforts of the automotive industry are focused on developing and manufacturing of lighter vehicles with reduced fuel consumption and reduced gas emissions. Demands should be achieved without sacrificing of mechanical properties and safety, with acceptable car cost. Emphasis is placed on analyse of roles and properties of light metals (aluminium and magnesium) and their alloys, plastics and steels. Modification technologies of those materials are also shown. On the base of the investigations, it is seen that the usage of light metals; aluminium and magnesium alloys become very attractive. However, in spite of increased usage of those materials, average motor vehicles are still made mostly of steel. The main reason is the price of non-ferrous materials. On the other side, the pressure to reduce fuel consumption through vehicle design has been the driving force behind the development of high-strength steels and ultra high-strength steels.
