Daihatsu develops high fuel efficiency technology


Daihatsu Motor Co said Tuesday it has developed a high fuel efficiency technology that will be at the heart of production of future motor vehicles with high fuel efficiency, low prices, and resource-saving features. The technology is branded “e:S Technology,” which stands for Energy Saving Technology, the company said.


Daihatsu said it carried out exhaustive overhauls of existing technologies, including all aspects of the engine, the transmission, and the body structure, to maximize energy efficiency and achieve almost a 40% increase in fuel efficiency. It said the technology will be introduced to a new fuel-efficient vehicle model due to be released in September this year.


It is anticipated that it will be the only gasoline powered vehicle with a fuel mileage of 30 kilometers per liter in JC08 mode. This new mini vehicle will be marketed as the third environmentally friendly car that is accessible to everyone, featuring high fuel economy, energy conservation and an entry price of less than 800,000 yen.
