“We’re taking highly efficient engines and upping the ante to further benefit our customers,” said Mike Duhaime, Global Director-Electrified Powertrain Propulsion Systems. “ESS leverages intricate control strategies to deliver a superior driving experience, as well as the expected fuel-savings and emissions-reduction.”

The system uses a high-speed/high-durability starter that reduces crank time and beefier batteries maintain other vehicle systems so in-cabin comfort is unaffected. The technology will arrive in the third quarter of this year.
