The main material used during the production process, Cellulose Nanofiber, is gotten from plants coupled with recycled agricultural waste, which the manufacturer used for its body work (roof, hood and doors). By implication, the Cellulose concept is 50% lighter than conventional autos. The company has also utilized CNF extensively in the structural tub of the car.
