Honda develops ecological drive assist system


Honda Motor Co has announced the development of an ecological drive assist system, which combines three functions to enhance fuel economy: the ECON Mode utilizes harmonized control of the continuously variable transmission (CVT) and engine to support more fuel-efficient driving; the guidance function uses speedometer color to provide real-time guidance on fuel-efficient driving; and the scoring function provides feedback about current driving practices, as well as feedback on cumulative, long-term fuel-efficient driving.


Honda said it is the world’s first system to combine these three functions in a comprehensive approach to fuel economy enhancement and will be implemented for the first time on the all-new Insight hybrid vehicle in spring 2009.
