Paris Motor Show: Ferrari showcase their HELE System
If you’re thinking “what the HELE does that stand for”, then here you go: High Emotion Low Emissions. It’s a new system Ferrari has designed to reduce C02 emissions while maintaining the thrill and passion of driving.
So what does this HELE System consist of? A start/stop function turning the car off every time the car comes to a complete standstill, then restarting it in 230 milliseconds when the driver hits the throttle; carbon fiber bits keeping weight figures down; an intelligent engine fan and fuel pump control system; an electronically controlled variable displacement air-conditioning technology; and lastly, an adaptive gear shifts system. The result is a 23 percent reduction in C02 emissions.
Although they only showcased the HELE System on this Ferrari California model, be expecting it to pop up across the entire model lineup at some point in the future.
