Ford’s Start-Stop technology is an advanced system that shuts off a cars engine when it comes to a stop. This is only currently available in the Fusion and Escape Hybrid.
This technology will soon be added to conventional cars, crossovers and SUVs in North America.
Ford’s patented new Auto Start-Stop system for gasoline engines will improve fuel economy for most drivers by at least 4 percent. The gain can be as high as 10 percent for some drivers, depending on vehicle size and usage. It can also reduce tailpipe emissions to zero while the vehicle is stationary or waiting at a stoplight.
