Nissan launches eco metre

Tokyo - If pushing the pedal makes the environmentalist in you cringe, Japanese carmaker Nissan said on Tuesday it will equip all new cars with a device that could help improve fuel efficiency.

When the accelerator is pressed, a meter shows the driver by how much fuel consumption is rising.

The device could improve fuel efficiency by an average 10%, it added.

"When people have a fuel-efficiency metre on their cars, they tend to drive more carefully, trying to achieve good readings," said Nissan spokesperson Haruko Wada.

She said the carmaker's move to make the device a standard feature on all of its cars is part of efforts to cut CO2 emissions and promote its environmental technologies.
