Energy Efficient Technologies
Energy efficient technologies are available now! Many currently available vehicles boast new, performance-enhancing, fuel-saving technologies that can save you money.
|Cylinder Deactivation saves fuel by deactivating cylinders when they are not needed.
|Turbochargers & Superchargers increase engine power, allowing manufacturers to downsize engines without sacrificing performance or to increase performance without lowering fuel economy.
|Start-Stop Systems automatically turn the engine on/off when the vehicle is stopped to reduce fuel consumed during idling.
|Gasoline Direct Injection with turbocharging or supercharging delivers higher performance with lower fuel consumption.
|Valve Timing & Lift Technologies improve engine efficiency by optimizing the flow of fuel & air into the engine for various engine speeds.
|Reducing Vehicle Weight means less energy is needed to propel the vehicle. Significant improvement can be obtained with weight reduction and powertrain downsizing.
||3%–4% per 5% reduction in weight1
|Low Rolling Resistance Tires reduce the parasitic energy loss from tires rolling under load.
