What is the Stop-Start Technology?

The stop-start system is one of the fuel economy and emissions reduction components of its “Efficient Dynamics” technology package and it has been featured in the four-cylinder engines developed by BMW.
The initial name was Auto Start/Stop, and the way it works is the system automatically switches off the engine when the car comes to a standstill. As soon as the driver puts in the clutch or depresses the gas pedal, the engine fires up automatically. Obviously, this solution works only on manual transmissions, …for now.
