Bosch showcases safety and fuel efficient technologies in Washington D.C.
Bosch is taking its clean diesel technology and advanced safety systems to the nation’s capital to be a part of this year’s Washington Auto Show and provide information on the current state of clean diesel, future safety systems and the benefits of these technologies. 

Washington Auto Show

Clean Diesel

Vehicles equipped with Bosch’s clean diesel technology provide on average up to 30 percent better fuel economy and up to 25 percent fewer emissions compared to an equivalent port fuel injected gasoline engine. These advantages translate into more miles to the gallon, fewer trips to the pump and an immediate reduction of tailpipe emissions.

“Bosch is investing in a variety of powertrain options from gasoline, diesel, hybrids and electrification, as each technology has its benefits,” said Lars Ullrich, director of marketing, Bosch Diesel Systems North America. “For those who want to reduce emissions and improve fuel economy, clean diesel is an option that is available today. It provides immediate benefits to consumers, who do not have to change their lifestyle to enjoy them.”

Advanced Safety Systems

It is estimated that 90 percent of all crashes are caused by driver error. Bosch’s active and passive safety systems as well as driver assistance technologies can help reduce the number of these accidents and save lives. From technology within the vehicle or one that interacts directly with the driver, Bosch is focused on preventing accidents before they happen with its active safety systems and driver assistance technologies. And when accidents do occur, Bosch has developed passive safety systems that work to reduce the severity of driver, passenger and pedestrian injuries.

 “We are focused on developing systems that bring us closer to a world of accident-free driving,” says Scott Winchip, regional president, Chassis Systems Control North America. “Our safety technologies can help reduce the number of injuries and fatalities caused by traffic accidents.”
