Nissan Motor Co. announced today that it will phase in fuel-efficiency meters on all new models to promote awareness of more economical driving habits. The move is part of the company's overall efforts to launch a wide range of environmental technologies under its mid-term environmental action plan: Nissan Green Program 2010. This new feature will also be introduced on existing models to coincide with the timing of minor model changes.

Showing instant fuel-efficiency and average efficiency, the meters help make drivers more conscious of fuel-efficiency and the direct consequences that their driving styles have on a vehicles fuel-economy. In Nissan conducted in-house tests, the introduction of these meters lead to a fuel economy improvement of approximately 10%.

Until now, Nissan has offered navigation systems which show both instant and average fuel-efficiency. By placing these meters in the main instrument cluster, the company hopes to improve the effectiveness of these simple devices to raise driver awareness on eco-driving habits.

Under the Nissan Green Program 2010, the company added a new feature to its CARWINGS information service to support greener driving habits in January.
