Bravo to Get Fiat's eco:Driving
In addition, Fiat has also mentioned a bunch of interesting figures concerning the downloadable application and the impact it had on Fiat owners. For example, the automaker claims that Fiat owners participating to the program saved more than 124,000 kg of CO2, which is “equivalent to cooking 240,000 Christmas dinners,” as it explained. “A huge thank you from Fiat, and the planet.”
For those of you who didn't know, Fiat's eco:Drive is a software tool that can be downloaded from the official website of the carmaker and installed on a USB flash drive. After you're done with the configuration process, plug the USB drive into the auto PC port and let eco:Drive do its job. It automatically analyzes fuel consumption, average speed and gear shifts and provides tips on how to drive more economically and to reduce CO2 emissions.
“eco:Drive is an innovative, easy-to-use computer application that will help you improve how efficiently you drive. It analyses your driving style and helps you use less fuel, reducing your CO2 emissions and saving you money. It's an industry leading concept that will evolve and develop with feedback from all the eco:Drivers taking part. And as the numbers grow, the application will automatically update and improve,” Fiat said in the application's description.
