AMG introducing stop-start and direct-injection technology in 2010

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

Horsepower is no longer the present focus of AMG, making efficiency the new standard for performance. AMG is presently developing a whole new lineup of diesel versions with ultra-lightweight materials and advance construction processes including, and hybrid systems, of course.

By 2010, according to AutoTelegraaf, AMG will be introducing stop-start and direct-injection technology throughout its range.

AMG's stop-start will work much in the same way as the regular system where the engine is powered down at full stop and revived when the brake pedal is released or the accelerator is activated.

On the other hand, the direct injection system will be patterned after the second generation found in the C350 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY version of Mercedes-Benz.

The aim of AMG is to reduce fuel usage by 30 percent all throughout the range by the year 2012 with better technology than it presently has.

Although there is still much work to be done where efficient diesels and hybrid versions are concerned, the SL65 Black Series is the initial implementation of AMG's current green initiatives and the lightweight materials and weight-reducing processes that come with it will be passed on to models of the future.
