Daihatsu e:S Technology achieve almost a 40% increase in fuel efficiency
Daihatsu recently announced its development of a high fuel efficiency technology that will be at the heart of production of future motor vehicles with high fuel efficiency, low prices, and resource-saving features. The technology is branded e:S Technology, which stands for Energy Saving Technology. In the process of this development, Daihatsu carried out exhaustive overhauls of existing technologies, including all aspects of the engine, the transmission, and the body structure, to maximize energy efficiency and achieve almost a 40% increase in fuel efficiency.
This technology will be introduced to a new fuel-efficient vehicle model due to be released in September this year. It is anticipated that it will be the only gasoline powered vehicle with a fuel mileage of 30 kilometers per liter in JC08 mode. This new mini vehicle will be marketed as the third environmentally friendly car that is accessible to everyone, featuring high fuel economy, energy conservation and an entry price of less than 800,000 yen ($10 151).
