Ford will install energy saving system in its vehicles

The company Ford has announced that for the year 2012 the vehicles that supply the North American market will include the work Auto Start-Stop.

This system saves between 4% and 10% of fuel depending on the car model.

The Auto Start-Stop system consists of turning off the engine when the vehicle stops automatically when, for example, it stops at a traffic light or for any other circumstance, and it turns on again when you take your foot off the brake.

But the novelty of this system is that even if the engine is turned off, accessories such as heating or air conditioning, among others, continue to work, since it does not affect it.

This system will be used in hybrid cars and conventional the first models to arrive in North America will be the Ford Fusion and Escape hybrids.

This technology can be used in all types of vehicles such as street cars, 4 × 4 trucks and others.

This system allows save a lot of fuel and hence contamination throughout the life of the car.

In Europe there are companies that use this type of technology but in North America it is not yet found in cars.

Technology improves and makes vehicles more efficient and less polluting.

Automotive companies are developing major improvements in terms of emission reduction, to keep the performance and the benefits of the vehicles a bit pressured by the states and by consumers who demand greater environmental commitment on their part.

These systems do not require the user to do anything special does not affect comfort and driving.

Even Ford did not determine if all the vehicles will have this system or only the full models, but at least it is an advance since they will gradually be incorporated as one more element of the cars, not as something extraordinary.
