So the auto industry is going to use aluminum to make autos lighter to increase gas mileage. That sounds like some things the government would do, like raise the taxes to help the people.
In the early 1930s that was tried by a auto(maker) named Pierce Arrow. A big beautiful auto, and it had a lot of a aluminum in it, and folks who had one were quite proud until they drove it on a winter street that had been salted.
The salt ate that aluminum like a 5-year-old eating Tootsie Rolls. I don't remember seeing many on the roads after that.
An ultralight auto would be hard to control in a strong crosswind, too, and think what it would be like to be hit by any kind of other vehicle except a bike.
One that I know is that me and my wife are going to hang on to are our Kias. They do not put drivers at risk and even use some stainless steel, have a great warranty and lots of driver protection.
