7% lower fuel consumption with active gas pedal

The driver’s foot is responsible for one-quarter of fuel consumption. Up to now, the only thing that could be done about this rule of thumb was to drive gently and take eco-driving courses. Now, however, Bosch has developed a technical aid in the shape of the active gas pedal: its gentle vibration tells drivers when they have crossed the line from light touch to lead foot.

Save fuel by stopping the engine before the vehicle

Helping to combat the ever rising cost of fuel, Bosch has developed a new start-stop coasting function which stops the engine when the vehicle is in motion to save fuel. The new system stops the engine whenever the vehicle can maintain its speed simply by rolling (i.e. on a slope). As soon as the driver touches the accelerator or brake pedal, the engine starts up again. Bosch's new start-stop coasting function enables travel in zero-emission, noi...
