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.

Hold

The Hold function can be used to save the hybrid battery charge in order to use the energy at a later date, e.g. when driving in an urban environment or through housing areas.

The car works as for normal hybrid operation and uses both the internal combustion engine and the energy generated when you brake in order to maintain the charge in the battery.

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.

Charging cable locks automatically

While you are packing your car, or if you have forgotten to lock the car, you may find that the charging cable has locked into the car's charging input socket automatically. This is to ensure that e.g. charging or preconditioning can be started and to increase the range for electric operation.

Range in electric mode for Twin Engine

By using the car's electric motor you can reduce fuel consumption and at the same time help save the environment. You can affect how far you can drive by frequently charging the car, using preconditioning and planning your journey.
