Driver information system with efficiency program
The display of the driver information system (DIS) brings together a wide range of different information items in the centre of the cockpit and permanently indicates the vehicle’s current operating status. It is intuitively laid out, user-friendly, and allows the driver to stay focused on the road.
The newly designed gearshift indicator signals to the driver when to shift, for optimal fuel economy: a large, colour-coded display indicates whether the right gear is engaged, or whether shifting would be practical for the sake of efficiency. Comfort features like air conditioning and seat heating also increase fuel consumption. A specially developed display in the efficiency program identifies the systems requiring extra energy and indicates their share in fuel consumption.
