Engine compartment

Engine compartment - overview

Updated 7/23/2018

The overview shows some service-related components.

Some of the car's batteries and several of the components included in the car's electric drive system are located under the bonnet. Exercise caution in this area and only touch anything that is related to normal maintenance.


Orange-coloured cables must only be handled by qualified personnel.


Several components in the car work with high-voltage current that could be dangerous in the event of incorrect intervention.

  • Do not touch anything that is not clearly described in this owner's manual.
  • Exercise caution when checking/refilling fluids in the engine compartment.
