Renault announced on Wednesday (29) the launch of the line in 2017 and the Duster Duster Oroch models with important news. Now all versions 2.0 16V both become equipped with electro-hydraulic steering and in the case of the truck, automatic transmission (optional).
Promising improvement in energy efficiency of up to 11.5% for the 2.0 engine compared to the previous model, Renault applied the ESM system (Energy Smart System) energy regeneration function during deceleration car when the driver removes the foot off the accelerator. At this point, the switch automatically switches to recover energy and send it to the battery, which increases its load without fuel consumption. The electro-hydraulic steering, in turn, promises 2% reduction in consumption.
To improve your business efficiency solutions sought in Formula 1 with the ESM system (Energy Smart System) energy regeneration. During deceleration, the motor keeps turning without consuming fuel. It is time that the alternator begins to recover energy automatically to the battery, which increases its load without fuel consumption. Thus, the alternator does not need to steal the engine power to send it to the battery during acceleration, since there was already charging during deceleration.
The versions with the 2.0 engine also won electro-hydraulic steering, which promotes variable effort that adjusts according to speed – gets heavier at high speeds, providing greater security. In this system, the steering pump is now driven by an electric motor apart, not by the car engine, preventing power loss and reducing up to 2% fuel consumption.
