PROGRESSIVE CAR REPLACEMENT WITH ULTRALIGHTWEIGHT VEHICLES: AN ALTERNATIVE WE CAN AFFORD

A cheap way to improve urban transport is by the introduction of inexpensive, mass-produced ultralightweight cars both for personal use and for CBD public hire. This approach is compatible with forthcoming energy shortages. After an initial surge of economic activity, in the longer term this action would reduce the turnover of the motor industry to less than half its present level. Although the approach is unattractive to the present motor industry it seems likely to become necessary in the Australian national interest. (TRRL)
