Component as well as product development passes through somewhat different target phases during its journey from prototype to the mass produced end product. The aim i.e. to develop a functional product which is reasonably priced and right for the market, should always be kept in mind by the developes. The weight can be reduced by using plastics materials which, moreover, enable several components to be integrated into one unit. This applies to all the parts of a vehicle.
