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 industry (2011 According to the EPA, the Volt, will be released in 2011, get 60mpg using both its and gas based system (Murphy, In four hours, the Chevy can be fully charged for about and able to travel around 45 (Murphy, 2010). During the 45 the car can reach a maximum of 168mpg, but the gas motor kicks in, it drops to (Murphy, 2010). When on its battery, the car produces zero which is extremely environmentally Similar to the Volt, the Nissan is being released soon but it is a electric car without a tailpipe. It be able to travel 100 miles a full charge, which about seven hours leaf electric). The Nissan does not have a backup and is therefore completely emission Although electric cars improvement, they provide a way to drive and
will soon be a major for other hybrid cars as as the Boxfish Car. The Boxfish car “AdBlue” to further reduce Depending on the engine’s operating a clear, non-toxic, and safe to aqueous urea solution “AdBlue”, is sprayed into the system (Mercedes-benz bionic 2008). The reaction converts the oxides into nitrogen and AdBlue, even at a low dosage, is proven to be able to ensure refill periods, decreasing the of times one will have to his or her tank in a year (What is 2009). The car also comes a special filter which to clean the diesel gas as well as the before they are released. A engine is also beneficial to a car it will last much than a gas engine, This is due to the that diesel fuel is friendlier to an engine than
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).
