It seems clear that how cars are built has been changing, and that this change is likely to accelerate. Where in the past cars were basically about a ton or two of steel with a little aluminum, plastic, copper, and maybe a smidge of leather, some cars now have large batteries, are made of alum etc.
So what is the most likely makeup of cars built 5-10 years from now? Predominantly electric, and so have batteries? Carbon fiber or alum or back to steel? What “new” materials will make up a much larger part than now, and maybe change their international trade?
Or maybe not much change at all?
