More Engine Stop/Start Systems On The Way

stop start

Bosch has developed a new stop/start engine system which can be used on a much wider range of automatic gearboxes.

Although there is already a small number of automatic cars with the stop/start facility, the new system will be suitable for a much bigger range of gearboxes and it can also be used with dual-clutch transmissions.

Bosch has said that the new system will cut fuel consumption and emissions by around 5% and improve efficiency around town by 8%.

Bosch has also made the restart process much faster so drivers will not have to take their car out of ‘drive’ mode to use the system.
