Abstract

Considering the importance of personal cars in Iranian users’ daily life, this research is aimed to firstly make it clear what level of sustainability the personal passenger vehicles used in Iran have. One of the most important issues that all car makers and designers are concerned about is the formalistic characteristic or stylistic feature of a car. So, the other aim of this research is to understand whether there is any relation between the cars sustainability levels and their formalistic features. In this research, 45 samples of sedan and hatchback cars, which are the most commonly used ones in Iran, are collected. After extracting the indicators of vehicle sustainability from the scholar works, the samples levels of sustainability are calculated. The samples are then analyzed on the basis of their formalistic characteristics. Accordingly, the relation between sustainability levels and the formalistic characteristics of the samples is drawn. The results of this analysis could be effective for developing the design guideline for formalistic features of the sustainable cars.
