Michelin Green Jersey grabbed the award for most fuel efficient driving at the AJAC 2015 EcoRun. The event with the fleet of 20 vehicles completed the final of day of the AJAC 2015 Vancouver Island EcoRun. The event showcased the latest eco-friendly and fuel-efficient technologies, along with their 21 AJAC Journalist drivers.
Thirteen manufacturers participated in this year’s two-day drive. The 20 participating vehicles represent a range of models from subcompacts, compacts, family sedans and sport utility vehicles to sport coupes and pickups. There were pure electric, plug-in hybrid, conventional hybrid, diesel, high-efficiency gasoline and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles participating in the event.
With more than 6 different driving legs over the course of the two days, the 21 journalists swapped cars at each leg, selected at random, so that everyone was able to drive a variety of vehicles over the course of the two-day event. This way, your fuel efficient driving techniques had to change according to the vehicle you were selected to drive, not allowing for journalists to become ‘comfortable’ in one particular vehicle.
