Japanese 'sportscar' made from recycled materials

Innovation in the automotive world continues to move towards the concept of environmentally friendly. Like the concept car on display at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show, made from plants and agricultural waste. And then talking about environmentally friendly cars isn't just a matter of switching fossil fuels to electricity.

The car in question is the Nano Cellulose Vehicle (NCV) which is a new project from Japan. This concept car is environmentally friendly because the components of this car use materials from plants and recycling agricultural waste.
The Nano Cellulose Vehicle (NCV) project made by a consortium of 22 universities in Japan, research institutes, and several large companies and runs by the Japanese Ministry of Environment since 2016. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/33awUn5)
The NCV project does not work alone but through a consortium of 22 universities in Japan, research institutes, and several large companies. And this project has been run by the Japanese Ministry of Environment since 2016

As quoted from Carscoops, which states that the NCV car uses Celloluse Nanofiber derived from recycled plant material and agricultural waste. For information, and on the NCV concept car, the material is used to build bodies including doors, roofs to hood and trunk. Not only the body, CNF is also used in the framework of this car.
In the interior of the Nano Celullose Vehicle (NCV) is dominated by wood materials, from the dashboard to the steering wheel. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/33awUn5)
It was also mentioned the use of these materials was 50 percent lighter than the material currently used. And according to one member of the consortium, the person in charge of exterior design from Toyota Customizing & Development, Yuzo Niimi, said that in general this car has a sporty design with sharp lines indentation.
To support the design, this concept car also uses a butterfly wing door model, multi-spoke wheels and taillights design that is reminiscent of the American car model Chrysler ME Four-Twelve. Looking into the cabin, the NCV is clad in an all-wood interior, with the steering wheel model of two bars that already have a gear shifter.  
Besides being lighter, this car made from plants and agricultural waste also produces relatively small emissions. Not much is revealed about how under the hood, but it is mentioned for energy sources that are used using hydrogen fuel cells and can only run a maximum of 20 kilometers per hour (12 mph).

Yes, all of this good effort returns to ourselves. Is there a desire to implement it in the automotive industry which may now be in the comfort zone with the use of existing materials such as metal, plastic, or glass fiber and so on. Let's wait and see. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARSCOOPS | MASHABLE]
