My first thought was how this might apply to cars. In unibody construction, there are areas which could be described as semi-monocoque. I think the roof and from the C-pillar back would qualify. Vans and SUVs should qualify as monocoque from the A-pillar to the rear doors. They’re basically a big squared-off tube. The floor might be arguable, but I guess it would depend on the vehicle.
