CONFIRMED – The technology that can save millions in fuel costs and lower emissions.

Millbrook validation proves EcononSpeed’s fuel saving capabilities

Thorough testing at the Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire has proved that Zeta Automotive Econospeed will save fuel. The device, which can be fitted to a variety of vehicles was tested under different driving conditions on multiple routes and varying driving styles. The test carried out using a Wrightbus SB200 Pulsar proved to reduce fuel consumption across most driving conditions and driver styles.

Already adopted by the industry

Arriva, one of Europe’s leading transports operators, has already installed 3,500 EconoSpeed units on their bus fleet in the UK and are in the process of installing the device on their fleets across the European mainland. Arriva is set to save £4,000,000 in annual fleet fuel costs, as well as reducing carbon emissions, which in the UK alone could be cut by 37,500 tonnes over the next five years.

In their own independent testing involving vehicles from both the UK and Sweden Arriva confirmed an average fuel saving of 3% which across their entire fleet is set to save millions of pounds annually.

Health and safety benefits

EconoSpeed works by moderating the acceleration rate of the vehicle, and can also monitor location to ensure drivers stay at the road speed limit with the optional ISA update. On top of the fuel saving possibilities, this could also have a massive benefit in terms of health and safety. Not only will buses and coaches accelerate more responsibly – posing less threat to vehicles around them – but passengers will benefit from far smoother acceleration at traffic lights and junctions.

Save on fuel costs and reduce CO2 emissions by fitting EconoSpeed to your fleet this year.
