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.
Symbols in the hybrid gauge
Indicates current level for available electric motor power. If the symbol is filled in, it means that the electric motor is in use.
If the symbol is not filled in, it means that the electric motor is not in use.
Indicates the power level when the combustion engine starts. If the symbol is filled in, it means that the combustion engine is in use.
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.
Indicator that shows that the hybrid battery is being charged, e.g. if the brake pedal is gently depressed.
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.
The car is started but stationary, no power is requested.
The electric motor cannot supply the amount of engine power requested and the internal combustion engine starts.
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.
