Audi is working on variety of ways to improve the CO2 emissions of its vehicles by incorporating start-stop technologies, weight-saving features and aerodynamic innovations. The program is similar to BMW’s Efficient Dynamics move, which resulted in the start-stop technology being fitted into most of its models last year.
Audi officials have revealed info that the firm is currently working on its own version of start-stop, weight-saving programs and other ideas such as closing flaps on the grille when the radiator doesn’t need air, all aimed at reducing the average CO2 emissions level from its cars.
However, Audi says that the program is still two years away from being put into work with the production models.
Audi is also working on a hybrid version of its new A1 that is still under development. The Audi A1 won’t make it to the market until 2010, with a hybrid variant to follow shortly after.
