Honda’s fancy color-changing speedometer to make you a better driver
Is there anything like a good driver? I don’t think so. Either people are so full of it, that they think they are the next best thing to Shumarker or they are grandpa-types ominous. For the middle-slated heroes who think they are perfecto, Honda has designed the Ecological Drive Assist System. The technology’s ECON Mode works with the CVT and engine to “support more fuel-efficient driving.” The color-based “guidance function” tells if you’re slow-and-steady (green) or rash (a hot blue) and hopefully you’ll see sense and drive better! EDAS will be seen on the Insight hybrid by Spring 2009, and it’s not confirmed if it’ll be standard equipment on the rumored S3000.
