Hybrid gauge

In drive modes Hybrid and Pure, the driver display shows a hybrid gauge that can help the driver to drive the car in a more energy-efficient way.

P5P6-1917-Hybrid meter, changed values

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

P5-XC90H-15w19-Current level for available electric motor power

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-XC90H-15w19-Indicates the power level

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-XC90H-15w19-Indicator that the hybrid battery is being charged

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

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 marker between the lightning flash and the drop shows the point at which the internal combustion engine starts.

Example:

P5P6-1917-Hybrid meter, changed values

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

P5P6-1917-Hybrid meter, changed values, engine running

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

P5P6-1917-Hybrid meter, changed values, meter charging

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.
