The Seat Leon Ecomotive uses the Auto Start/Stop technology, when the car comes to a halt a a red traffic light for example the driver selects neutral and lifts his foot off the clutch. At this point the Start/Stop system kicks in and automatically switches off the engine. When the driver depresses the clutch again the engine starts up and when the gear is engaged the car can be driven off. The Seat Leon Ecomotive is also equipped with Seats energy recuperation function which recycles energy coming from the alternator when the driver takes his foot off the accelerator or steps on the brake. As the engine work is reduced the fuel consumption decreases.
