In addition to the map data, the function also takes into account speed limits, traffic and elevation differences.
The electric motor is used primarily when driving at low speeds e.g. during city driving with more stops and starts. The combustion engine is used primarily when driving at high speeds and can, in good conditions, generate power for the electric motor.
Conditions for the function
For the function to work requires that a number of conditions are met:
- A destination is set in the navigation system and the driving distance to the destination is longer than the range possible only on electric drive.
- Hybrid drive mode is selected.
- The Hold and Charge functions are deactivated.
Tips for use
If the car is used for commuting to work and it is not possible to charge the car at the place of work, specify the place of work as an intermediate destination and your home as the final destination. The discharging of the hybrid battery will then take place over your runs both to and from work.
Add similar commuting routes, i.e. the route between two charging points, as Favourites in the navigation system to facilitate arrival.
