Engineers at Ford have developed a micro hybrid Ford Fiesta, capable of improving fuel economy and carbon emissions by up to 15%.
According to a press announcement, the model is currently a research project but could potentially be in production by 2006.
PSA Peugeot-Citroen - also members of LowCVP - have recently launched a stop-start gasoline engine that turns itself off when the vehicle is stopped. The technology can result in fuel and carbon savings of between 5 and 8% according to the manufacturers.
Vehicles equipped with stop-start engines are also likely to go on sale from 2006.
