The purpose of this project is to establish the design and fabrication of the body for fuel efficient vehicle which caters aerodynamics purposes. Aerodynamic study is includes the study of the interactions of air with moving objects, such as car and airplanes, and of the effects of moving air on stationary objects such as building [2]. The components of aerodynamic comprise of drag force and lift force. This project is more concentrate on drag force since drag forces are parallel and opposite to th~: object's direction of motion and are cansed largely by friction. The study of the shape of the car is very important to have less aerodynamic drag force to reduce the air friction. In addition, Ergonomics study is the applied science of equipment design which intended to maximize productivity by reducing operator fatigue and discomfort [l]. In other word, ergonomics is study of human in order to make the design fit with the human nature.
