Volume I is entirely dedicated to the primary parts of the car body with some mention about commercial and industrial vehicle. Body shell, body components and body interiors components are considered in respective chapters.

A decision was taken to dedicate the first chapter to the history of the car body, with particular reference to the body work and its parts, enabling current car architectures to be explained in an appropriate context, presenting them within process of evolution.
