3 Things to Know About Hyundai Blue Drive Technology

  • Lower Emissions is a Driving Goal
    You know the saying, there is more than one way to skin a cat? Well, when it comes to fuel efficiency, there are a great variety of ways to reduce fuel consumption and improve a vehicle's mileage capabilities. After all, automotive engineers understand better than most that the great majority of Americans do not want to cram inside a two-seater electric car. That's why Hyundai is looking broader, innovating new products like an upcoming fuel cell vehicle that will run completely on hydrogen emitting only water in its wake. Today, Blue Drive Technology and vehicle strategies are included in a host of available options like Hyundai plug-in hybrids and traditional hybrids.

  • Innovative Alternator Management System
    One of the Hyundai Blue Drive Technology features you'll find in several vehicles offered at your local Hyundai dealership near Mequon and Caledonia is an innovative new Alternator Management System (AMS). This system uniquely uses the vehicle's deceleration and extra engine power to recharge the battery instead of the traditional method of using the alternator to constantly charge the battery while the vehicle is running. This system also enhances fuel efficiency by utilizing options like electric power steering and low rolling resistance to further cut down on carbon emissions and save drivers at the pump.

  • Intelligent Stop & Go
    Another exciting feature that came out as part of Hyundai's Blue Drive Strategy is the Intelligent Stop & Go system. This is an ideal system for those Mequon, Caledonia, and other suburban residents who frequently commute to Milwaukee during rush hour traffic. That's because what this system does is automatically turn the engine off whenever it is not actually moving forward (or backward), such as when you are stopped at a long light or in stop and go traffic on the highway. When you push the gas or clutch to move forward once again, the system will automatically turn the engine on and power you to move forward. According to Hyundai and other independent testing, this Intelligent Stop & Go system can save drivers as much as 15 percent on fuel. Plus, with less idling, you'll reduce your overall carbon emissions for a healthier drive.
