Title: VEHICLE CONTROL DEVICE
Abstract:
Provided is a vehicle control device that is capable increasing travel time and travel distance as a result of inertia travel, of increasing engine stop time, and of improving fuel consumption and exhaust gas reduction, etc., as a result of inertia travel, when a vehicle that is following a preceding vehicle approaches the preceding vehicle, prescribed inertia travel conditions are met, and the vehicle changes to inertia travel. When the vehicle changes to inertia travel, the vehicle control device controls a deceleration mechanism mounted in the vehicle, decelerates to a required speed that is at least the speed of the preceding vehicle and, once the vehicle has decelerated to the required speed, stops the deceleration by the deceleration mechanism and causes the vehicle travel by inertia.
