ECO ASSIST™

ECO ASSIST™ Provides Guidance on Mileage-Boosting Driving Practices

The new Insight offers exceptional fuel economy, and the new ECO ASSIST™ guidance function helps drivers get improved efficient performance from the Integrated Motor Assist System. The system guides drivers in accelerating and braking in ways that consume less fuel, and in taking better advantage of regenerative braking. Using these tools, the driver can achieve improved fuel economy performance.

The feedback provided by ECO ASSIST™ simply and effectively helps drivers accelerate and brake in ways conductive to enhanced fuel economy. Fuel-saving activities like smooth acceleration and braking make the speedometer background glow green. Somewhat less-efficient driving makes the meter glow blue-green. Aggressive starts and stops that consume extra fuel make the meter glow blue. By observing the speedometer background's response to driving practices and seeking to achieve a consistently green color, drivers can receive assistance in developing driving habits that typically enhance fuel economy.

The Multi-Information Display offers drivers a selection of informational displays, including an Eco Guide, in which the number of 'leaves' displayed indicates the level of environmentally responsible driving performance. Also, a bar extends to left or right to indicate fuel-efficient driving. A shorter bar to the right indicates a more efficient braking style. When the ignition switch is turned off, the 'leaves' in the top line of the display score driving in the just completed driving cycle (startup to shutdown), and a horizontal bar in the lower part of the display indicates cumulative performance. The scoring function encourages drivers to take an interest in developing fuel-efficient driving habits over the long term. If drivers prefer not to monitor fuel economy on the MID, they can switch this screen to another of their choice, such as the Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) schematic.
