Using existing European automobiles as examples, the morphological concepts of car body - chassis structure are developed (conventional rear drive, front wheel drive, rear engine). Possible variations of body and chassis as structural members are shown as well as their combination into “integral” construction. It is pointed out that car structures must be designed for limited deflection. It is shown that, under these conditions, the use of light alloys does not necessarily result in a saving in weight.
