Future Toyota Cars Will Have Automatic Engine Shut Off And Automatic Parking

Leaving your car idling is probably one of the worst things you could do as far as fuel consumption is concerned. Perhaps in a bid to help improve on energy efficiency, Toyota has announced that future Toyota vehicles are expected to come with an automatic engine shut off feature.

According to Toyota, “The Auto Shut Off feature will automatically shut off the engine after a pre-determined period of time in the event the vehicle is left running. Future enhancements will include smartphone App capabilities as an added reminder.” Toyota notes that they already offer a similar feature in its older cars, where they will notify the driver if they are idling for extended periods of time and reminds them to turn their engines off, but this will actually go ahead and do it on behalf of the driver.
