Ecological Drive Assist System
The "Ecological Drive Assist System" uses a combination of color cues in the speedometer and "leaves which grow" to encourages economical driving behaviors. When you push the "Eco" mode button, the speedo turns green when you're being frugal or blue when you're honing it, also a panel grows "leaves" to reward short term driving and displays the long term performance as well.
Dashboard display encourages and rewards greener driving styles. Honda has announced a new Ecological Drive Assist System to help drivers achieve better fuel economy. The technology will feature on the new Insight family hybrid car.
It will be the world's first system to combine three different functions to enhance fuel economy: an ECON Mode which controls engine, transmission and other powertrain components to support more fuel-efficient driving; a guidance function that helps drivers become more fuel efficient behind the wheel using the color of the speedometer display; and a scoring function that provides instant and long term feedback on driving techniques, after each journey.
