Temporary deactivation - standby mode

To temporarily deactivate the speed limiter and set it in standby mode:

Press .

The combined instrument panel's mark (5) changes colour from GREEN to WHITE (Digital) or from WHITE to GREY (Analogue) and the driver can temporarily exceed the set maximum speed.

The speed limiter is reactivated with one press on . The mark (5) then changes colour from WHITE to GREEN (Digital) or GREY to WHITE (Analogue) and the car's maximum speed is limited again.

Temporary deactivation with the accelerator pedal

The speed limiter can also be set in standby mode with the accelerator pedal, e.g. for rapidly accelerating the car out of a situation:

Depress the accelerator pedal fully.

The combined instrument panel shows the stored maximum speed with a coloured mark (5) and the driver can temporarily exceed the set maximum speed – the mark (5) changes colour from GREEN to WHITE (Digital) or WHITE to GREY (Analogue) during that time.

The speed limiter is automatically reactivated after the accelerator pedal is released and the car's speed is slowed down to below the selected/stored maximum speed - the mark (5) changes colour from WHITE to GREEN (Digital) or GREY to WHITE (Analogue) and the car's maximum speed is again limited.
