Ford Eco Mode is an innovative system that continually assesses the effects of your driving behaviour on your fuel consumption. It provides feedback on how you drive to assist you in becoming a more economical driver.
The technology will analyse your speed, braking, gear shifting, RPM, engine temperature and anticipation levels, as well as the number of short and long journeys you make.
It works through the trip computer, where the Eco Mode system will obtain all the said information and then send it to the driver through dashboard displays. The drivers’ fuel economy is rated using a system of three flower icons, representing the measured elements – gear shifts, anticipation and speed. All the flower icons have five petals, and the more economical the drive, the more petals light up. Ford estimates that drivers could save around 5% of their fuel consumption by adapting their driving style with Eco Mode.
