Learn more about CO2

According to some scientific studies, a well-trained and calm driver can reduce CO2 emissions by up to 40% compared to an untrained person and driving in a hurry.

Although over time, environmentally friendly driving solutions are constantly being updated, but they still revolve around the two main criteria below.
– Drive methodically and purposefully based on anticipation and preparation. In order to avoid unnecessary acceleration or braking.
– Use the engine as efficiently as possible. As the engine efficiency increases with the engine load and the internal friction loss decreases with decreasing the engine speed, the combination of high loads and low engine speeds allows to spend less fuel for the same power supplied by the engine.
