Underwater The boxfish conserves its strength by while consuming the least amount of energy. Car-making Biomimicry The Boxfish car includes traits of the boxfish including:

the appearance (face-body proportion)

the yet light material of the car frame

The fish takes of its light weight to move and efficiently through the water.

The structure of the fish conserves for the fish because it is both and streamlined The Boxfish Car’s shape creates less air when it is driven, therefore in better gas mileage. Thus, one accomplishment of this car is that it has the air friction in the current automobile This four seat has a drag coefficient of 0.19, is far better than that of two seat vehicle that has the lowest drag coefficient on the (Phenix, 2007). The Boxfish Car has a and lightweight frame that ensures higher mileage and a drive (Wilssense, 2005). As a of its innovative shape and improved car the Boxfish Car has better mileage existing high mileage per vehicles. There are several known hybrid cars in the car market. The Toyota Prius is the fuel efficient and most known hybrid car getting 50mpg (Prius ’10, The boxfish car; however, up to 84mpg on the highway, which is higher than that of the existing hybrid models 2005). The biggest competition for the car is the increasing number of electric being developed and released. The Chevy Volt is being publicized and recently won the 2011 Trend Car of the Year® award is one of the most

prominent honors in the automotive (2011 volt). According to the the Volt, which will be in 2011, will get 60mpg both its electric and gas based (Murphy, 2010). In four the Chevy Volt can be fully for about $1.50 and able to around 45 miles (Murphy, During the 45 miles, the car can reach a of 168mpg, but once the gas motor in, it drops to 37mpg (Murphy, When running on its battery, the car zero emissions which is environmentally friendly. Similar to the the Nissan LEAF is being soon but it is a 100% electric car a tailpipe. It will be able to 100 miles with a full which takes about hours (Nissan leaf The Nissan LEAF does not a backup motor and is therefore emission free. Although cars need improvement, provide a
clean way to drive and will be a major competitor for other cars as well as the Boxfish The Boxfish car uses “AdBlue” to reduce emissions. Depending on the operating status, a clear, and safe to handle aqueous solution called “AdBlue”, is into the exhaust system bionic car, 2008). The converts the nitrogen oxides nitrogen and water. AdBlue, at a low dosage, is also proven to be to ensure long refill decreasing the number of times one have to refill his or her tank in a (What is adblue, 2009). The car comes with a special which helps to clean the gas as well as the emissions before are released. A diesel engine is beneficial to a car because it will much longer than a gas This is due to the fact that fuel is
much friendlier to an engine regular gas. (Richard, Unlike the expensive Hydrogen cells that some cars of the future come diesel can be bought anywhere 2005). Another benefit of engines is that they very little carbon which is a leading contributor to (Daimlerchrysler showcases 70, 2005).
