Hybrid battery gauge
The hybrid battery gauge shows how much energy there is in the hybrid battery.
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.
The car combines an internal combustion engine that drives the front wheels with an electric motor that drives the rear wheels.
Hold and Charge
In some situations, it can be useful to be able to control the hybrid battery's state of charge while driving is in progress. This is possible with the functions Hold and Charge.
Selection of drive mode affects the car's driving characteristics in order to enhance the driving experience and facilitate driving in special situations.
General information on electric drive
The hybrid car runs like a regular car, but certain functions differ from a car that only runs on petrol or diesel. The electric motor drives the car mostly at low speeds, the petrol engine at higher speeds, as well as during more active driving.
Symbols and messages relating to hybrid drive in the driver display
A number of symbols and messages regarding hybrid drive can be shown in the driver display. They may also be shown in combination with general indicator and warning symbols and are then extinguished when the problems have been rectified.
Long-term storage of vehicles with hybrid batteries
To minimise hybrid battery degradation during prolonged storage (longer than 1 month) of the vehicle a charge level of approximately 25% is recommended as indicated on the driver display.
Range in electric mode
The car's range depends on several factors. The ability to achieve a long range varies according to the circumstances and conditions under which the car is being driven.
To achieve the longest possible range, the driver should plan driving and adapt driving style and speed to the prevailing situation.
Recycling the batteries
Used batteries must be recycled in an environmentally sound manner.
The car is equipped with a hybrid battery for electric motor operation - a maintenance-free rechargeable Lithium-ion type battery.
