Fundamentally - there's no diminishing returns for cD - it's actually the opposite .1cD versus .2 cD halves for the force... .2 vs. .3 is a third

But, the mechanics half has to be able to keep up. Less force to overcome isn't any good if you're power plant is too big to begin with.

It's just exponentially more difficult to lower cD the further down you go. Not diminishing returns - just exponential investment
Cars have not created a new problem. They merely made more urgent the necessity to solve existing ones.
