A small off road car designed to be as comfortable
in the city, as at the beach or in the country side. Its well designed interior providing comfort and features.
Modern with a retro look.
Dubbed a “wonder material,” automakers are working to utilize graphene, a form of carbon, 200 times stronger than steel but as thin as an atom.
First developed by NASA for use in space suits and now used in car body construction, Aerogel is one of the world’s lightest materials. It’s 99.8 percent air but it is capable of retaining a solid form.
Some automakers are producing vehicles equipped with chemically hardened glass. The glass is approximately half the weight of conventional laminated glass.
Bluegrace Automotive is following these and many more innovative ideas that are sure to revolutionize the automobile industry as it races towards new concepts and conveniences sure to captivate consumers of the 21st century.
Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials
Bluegrace Automotive in conjunction with Bluegrace Nanotechnologies operates on the cutting edge of this new and exciting technical frontier.
Automobile companies are using nanotechnology and nanomaterials to improve the performance of new cars and meet consumer needs along with regulatory requirements. Some car companies have used conductive carbon nanotube composite materials in fuel systems and other auto parts since the late 1990s. Others use nanocomposites in bumpers, making some products 60 percent lighter, but twice as resistant to denting and scratching while still others are investigating using nanocellulose, which is light, strong like carbon fiber, but inexpensive to produce using new algae-based manufacturing methods. These technologies will make cars lighter and more fuel efficient.
Examples of the variety of functions of nanomaterial products in the automotive industry:
Tires reinforced with nanoparticles for better abrasion resistance;
Car coatings exhibiting greater scratch resistance and improved gloss;
Anti-fog coatings for headlights and windshields;
Structural plastic parts combining higher mechanical performance with reduced weight.
To keep pace with ever-growing consumer demands for sophisticated new technologies, automakers spend more than $100 billion annually on R&D. In comparison, the entire global aerospace and defense industry spent about $25.5 billion on R&D — one quarter of what the auto industry spent.
Bluegrace Automotive participates globally with existing automotive companies through direct investment ownership, increase of capitalization through structured financing programs, fully administered business turnaround and multinational expansion programs.
“Since 1999, patents awarded to all manufacturing industry sectors have increased in number by only 3 percent. Patents awarded to the auto industry have increased by 10 percent in the same period…”

As a leading investor in these innovative technologies, Bluegrace Automotive is positioned to become an industry leader in the future of automotive development.
Today’s leading automakers are developing cars that park themselves, brake at the sign of danger and stay in lanes without driver assistance. What once only existed in the imaginations of science fiction writers is now being developed and tested by car makers in laboratories and on roadways across the globe.
Today’s automobile is the most sophisticated technology owned by consumers. Virtually every aspect of the modern automobile is now high-tech, uses a high-tech material or was developed through a high-tech process. As a result, automakers rank at the top of lists on most innovative companies, and automakers are recognized leaders in Research and Development (R&D) investments worldwide.
