Hybrid related information in the driver display

Updated 7/23/2018

The driver display shows different instruments and functions depending on the drive mode selected. The instruments help the driver to drive the car while maintaining the best possible driving economy.

The car also stores statistics of journeys made, which can be viewed in the form of a block diagram. See the section "Show trip statistics in the centre display".

Hybrid gauge

P5-1646-XC90H-hybrid gauge Ready mode

The hybrid gauge shows in different ways the relationship between how much power is being taken from the electric motor and how much power is available.

Hybrid-unique symbols

P5- 15w19-XC90H - torque bolt -DIM

Indicates current level for available electric motor power. If the symbol is filled in, it means that the electric motor is in use.

P5-15w19 - XC90H torque bolt outline

If the symbol is not filled in, it means that the electric motor is not in use.

P5- 15w19-XC90H - torque drop - DIM

Indicates the power level when the combustion engine starts. If the symbol is filled in, it means that the combustion engine is in use.

P5-15w19 - XC90H Torque drop outline

Indicates the power level when the internal combustion engine is due to start. If the symbol is not filled in, it means that the combustion engine is not in use.

P5- 15w19-XC90H - battery - electrick engine charging - DIM

Indicator that shows that the hybrid battery is being charged, e.g. if the brake pedal is gently depressed.

P5-15w19 - XC90H eDTE indicator

Information from trip computer: distance to empty battery, eDTE (Electrical Distance To Empty) indicator. Shows approximate distance with remaining energy quantity in the hybrid battery.

P5-15w19 - Hybridbattery indicator

The symbol belongs to the hybrid battery gauge in the lower right-hand section of the instrument.

Available electric motor power

P5-1646-XC90H-Hybrid battery gauge

Hybrid battery gauge.

The upper right-hand section of the instrument contains a hybrid battery gauge. The gauge shows how much energy there is in the battery. This energy is used for the electric motor, but also to cool or heat the car.

Driver-requested power

The pointer in the hybrid gauge indicates the amount of engine power requested by the driver by regulating the accelerator pedal. The higher the reading on the scale, the more power is requested by the driver in the current gear. The marking between the lightning bolt and the drop indicates the transition point where the electric motor stops working and the combustion engine takes over.

Example:

P5-1646-XC90H-hybrid gauge Ready mode

The car is started but stationary, no power is requested.

P5-1646-XC90H-Hybrid gauge combustion engine on

The electric motor cannot supply the amount of engine power requested and the internal combustion engine starts.

P5-1646-XC90H-Hybrid battery gauge regenerating

The car generates current to the battery, the battery is charged, e.g. when the brake pedal is pressed lightly or during engine braking down a hill.

Functions "Hold" and "Charge"

P5-15w19 - Drivemode SAVE lock

The symbol in the hybrid battery gauge indicates that the Hold or Charge function is activated. For more information on these functions, see the section "Maintain or increase the hybrid battery's state of charge while driving".
