Fiat launch environmental range

Although Fiat can already lay claim to the lowest range-wide average carbon dioxide figure from its total production and that it offers New Zealand buyers one of the most economical cars on the market with the Fiat 500 JTD, Fiat will launch a range of specific low emission cars at this week’s (2 October 2008) Paris International Motor Show to further enhance its green credentials.

The PUR-O2 models within Fiat’s range will offer new technology to cut fuel consumption and reduce emissions, and with their EcoDrive system will attempt to teach their owners to drive more economically. The new technology includes Stop & Start, ‘green’ tyres, low viscosity fluids, improved aerodynamics and gearboxes with ratios chosen to maximize fuel economy and cut emissions. EcoDrive, a development of the Blue & Me system already available in Australia, gathers information about how the car is driven and then, with this data transferred to the home computer, shows how the car may be driven more economically and how to cut emissions.

The new PUR-O2 line shows Fiats atempts for innovative solutions to contain polluting emissions and CO2 levels. JATO — automotive research and consulting group recently announced that, out of the ten biggest selling automobile brands in Europe, Fiat Automobiles is the brand that achieved the lowest average CO2 emissions value for the cars it sold in 2007, i.e 134.6 g/km. And again in 2007, the CO2 emissions of no fewer than 23% of the cars sold by Fiat were lower than 120 g/km and 67% of Fiat cars achieved a level of less than or equal to 140 g/km.

Fiat Automobiles is now aiming to achieve the lowest average adjusted level of CO2 emissions for its cars by 2012. Fiat intends to pursue its goal by introducing a targeted campaign on its engines, transmission and cars and also the structural use of the Start & Stop system.

The Stop & Start system was developed in conjunction with FPT — Fiat Powertrain Technologies — and includes a reinforced starter motor produced by Bosch in addition to a control strategy that analyses engine, gearbox and climate control parameters to reduce fuel consumption and emissions while maintaining the Fiat 500’s handling and reliability standards.
