The AP reports that cars could soon be using Gorilla Glass, such as the lightweight kind used in smartphone. The material would allow car makers to reduce the weight of vehicles and improve fuel economy. “BMW AG was the first to use Gorilla Glass,” the article reports, adding that “the material formed an interior panel in the i8 hybrid sports car.” Ford Motor Co. “will be the first to use it for a windshield and rear window in the new Ford GT sports car,” the article adds. Gorilla glass will not be used for side windows in order to allow passengers to break them in the event of an emergency.
