Eco-Driving

Total promotes eco-driving

Fleet managers often face the challenge to reduce the costs of their fleets. Although new vehicle mechanisms play a major role in reducing these spendings, drivers can also have a major impact. To do so, drivers must respect simple and effective reflexes of eco-driving rules. 

Eco-driving is extremely beneficial fuel-wise for the fleet manager and security-wise for the driver as it enables them to: 


1. Save fuel costs 
2. Reduce maintenance necessitites
3. Cut CO2 emissions 
4. Diminish stress and weariness
5. Lower accident risks
6. Limit speed excesses

 

Eco-driving prones anticipation and smooth driving techniques, such as quickly shifting gears after the first acceleration; turn off the engine when possible; or making sure the vehicles' tyres are well-pressured. 

 

"(...) drivers must respect simple and effective reflexes of eco-driving rules"

 

Ways to promote eco-driving  include: 


1. Communicating specific eco-driving principles and techniques to drivers 
2. Installing data-catching systems onboard of vehicles to help drivers improve their driving
3. Proposing individual or collective eco-driving courses 

 

Eco-driving not only alters habits and decreases costs but it also gives companies a vision turned towards a more ecological future.
