Study: No Trade-Off Between Higher Fuel Economy and Vehicle Safety
 
Stolen from GCC.
Quote:

The potential to improve the fuel economy of light-duty vehicles while also improving traffic safety is debated because of the claim that lighter vehicles are, and will forever remain, more dangerous for their occupants. The critical issue is whether these historical tendencies are intrinsic, or whether they continue to change over time with new designs, testing, and sound regulations. The reality is that these relationships are not intrinsic to motor vehicles. Rather, the linkages among fuel economy, vehicle size, weight, and safety are manageable and are more a function of smart vehicle design than any other single factor.
Oh, Lutz, what's up now? Course, if my company couldn't design itself out of a paper bag, I'd be spouting off that kinda stuff too. :D

110% agreement. I'll use this thread to push the Hypercar example :

What is a Hypercar Vehicle?
