Smart start/stop technology to be introduced

The Smart fortwo range will have start/stop technology form October in Europe, and is expected to follow in other areas soon afterward.

The already efficient Smart is said to show an 8% improvement in fuel economy when fitted with start/stop technology.

This new technology stops the engine when the vehicle is stationary and re-starts when the driver presses the accelerator. Whether we will see this new system or the forth coming Smart diesel in New Zealand reamains to be seen.
