USA: Toyota cars to get auto engine shut off & auto park
Toyota USA has announced two safety features that are designed for forgetful drivers. Automatic engine shut off and automatic park will be a standard on cars from MY2020.
Automatic engine shut off will turn off a car after a pre-determined period of time in case the engine has been kept running. The system will also give enhanced audible and visual warning to drivers to remind them to turn off the engine. Since 2003, Toyota cars come equipped with the smart key system that gives a 2-step alert to the driver.
Automatic park will shift the gear into Park and/or apply the parking brake in case the driver leaves the vehicle without doing so. Toyota claims that this has been designed to reduce the risk of roll-away. Automatic park will be available in cars with electronic means of shifting into Park or with an e-brake.
