Reduce CO2, save fuel and costs – automatically and without changing your usual driving style? Bosch makes it possible. With a technically mature, very effective and at the same time cost-favorable solution: the start/stop starter motor for use in start/stop systems. Suitable for vehicles with manual or automatic transmission, particularly efficient in the “stop-and-go” conditions of dense urban traffic.
Economical driving and clean stops
The operating principle of the start/stop system is as simple as it is efficient: when the vehicle comes to a stop, the engine is automatically switched off. To drive off again, all you need to do is to activate the clutch or, in the case of vehicles with automatic transmission, take your foot off the brake pedal to restart the engine.
An investment that quickly pays for itself
The relatively low extra cost for acquiring such a system is more than outweighed by its enormous savings potential: in the ECE15 measuring cycle, the urban section of the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC), reductions in fuel consumption and emissions of around 8% were measured. This cycle comprises a trip of 7 km with 12 stops of 15 seconds each. In actual urban traffic, stopping times can be considerably longer and savings – both in terms of fuel consumption and CO2 output – can be as much as 15%.
