V60 Plug-in Hybrid
Gear selector inhibitor
There are two different types of gear selector inhibitor - mechanical and automatic.
Automatic gearbox -- Geartronic
The Geartronic gearbox has two different gear modes - Automatic and Manual.
A V60 Plug-in Hybrid is driven and operated in the same way as a car with a conventional internal combustion engine and automatic gearbox.The exception is that with the gear selector in manual gear position (+/-) the diesel engine will always be running. The driver must then change manually and the car engine brakes when the accelerator pedal is released, see Automatic gearbox -- Geartronic.
Gear shift indicator*
The gear shift indicator notifies the driver when it is appropriate to engage the next higher or lower gear. An essential detail in connection with environmental driving is to drive in the right gear and to change gear in good time.
