HEARTECT platform of Maruti lowers CO2 emission by 6 per cent
Maruti Suzuki India has introduced a series of innovations across its products and manufacturing processes that have contained emissions and lowered water use. The company has managed to save over 8.3 lakh tonnes of CO2 emission over the past decade through the introduction of CNG, LPG and Smart Hybrid vehicles.
The company has been consistently achieving improvements in fuel efficiency in the conventional petrol engine and diesel engine vehicles. The efforts have led to nearly 20 per cent fuel efficiency improvement in compact cars in both gasoline and diesel vehicles. This is achieved through focused innovations such as new generation platforms, friction reduction in drive train and improvement in drive-line losses.
The innovative next-generation HEARTECT platform lowers CO2 emission by 6 to 8 per cent while offering superior performance and safety. Blockbuster models such as the Baleno, IGNIS, Swift and Dzire, built on the HEARTECT platform, are thus more efficient with superior performance. These models meet the advanced safety norms, leading to a win-win for customers and the environment.
At its manufacturing facilities, Maruti Suzuki has reduced water consumption per vehicle manufactured by 6 per cent in 2017-18, compared to the previous year. At the same time, there is a per cent reduction in CO2 emission while manufacturing every vehicle over the past year.
