Hold and Charge

Using the Hold and Charge functions you have the option to control hybrid battery charging while driving. Hold and Charge have replaced the Save drive mode that was previously in cars with hybrid engines.

The internal combustion engine may start automatically and/or does not switch off

During electrical operation, the car may sometimes need to start the internal combustion engine automatically due to external circumstances, which is completely normal. In low outside temperatures, for example, this may take place in order to achieve the desired passenger compartment temperature. In addition, the engine starts when the hybrid battery reaches its lowest state of charge.

If the tank valve is closed on the Twin Engine during refuelling

When refuelling your Twin Engine, it may be handy to know that the valve in the fuel filler flap closes a short while after you have pressed the button to open the fuel filler flap. If the valve closes before you are ready to refuel, you will need to press the button to open the fuel filler flap and reopen the valve.
