iMobility Challenge raport now available

From 16 to 19 June iMobility Challenge organised an Ecodriving Competition at the European ITS Congress in Helsinki. Every congress delegate could take a short drive in Helsinki and see how their energy-efficient driving skills compare to a benchmark score set by Finnish F1 star, Valtteri Bottas.

Valtteri Bottas
said: "The road is not the race track, so when I drive in the city I aim to drive in a safe and efficient manner. It is great that modern technologies help drivers understand how their driving style affects their energy consumption, and make responsible driving fun."

An ENERFY on-board device and smartphone APP monitored the energy efficiency of the drivers' performance.

Here is the outcome of the competition:

1. Total participants: 262

2. Total number of drives: 445 (many participants tried more than once)

3. Valtteri's Enerfy score was 1229 points : position 121

4. Valtteri drove 36% more fuel efficient than the world average.

5. 46% of the participants manage to achieve Vallteri's excellent score, some tried several times to managed it. If you want to it is easy to be a fuel-efficient driver!

6. The participants drove 2 kms in Helsinki's traffic.

7. The top performers averaged 1338 points compared to 596 for the lower end of the board. Translated into in fuel efficiency, the difference was equivalent to 37,2 percent: that's how much difference your driving style has on energy consumption!

8. The top of the leader board didn't just use less energy to get the car around the track, they also were around 4% quicker: EcoDriving does not mean slow driving!
