Recommendation. The committee regards structural crashworthiness, and safety in general, extremely important in the design of lightweight PNGV vehicles. Using the Oak Ridge National Laboratory car-to-car collision simulation capability, the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration should support a major study to determine how well lightweight PNGV vehicles would fare in collisions with heavier vehicles and to assess potential improvements.
