THE POWER TO SUIT YOUR SURROUNDINGS
Explore the driving modes that switch your electric hybrid from electric to gas at the touch of a button.
OPTIMIZING YOUR FUEL ECONOMY
When in the default driving mode (Hybrid) you can optimize fuel economy or battery charge by utilizing one of two alternative charge management functions:
Manually selected through the vehicle’s touchscreen, the Save function prevents the battery charge dropping below your chosen level. On selected models, this function also allows the battery to be recharged on the move. This allows you to preserve quiet, zero-emission travel for a later point in the journey.
PREDICTIVE ENERGY OPTIMIZATION (PEO) FUNCTION
Entering a destination in your navigation system will automatically engage your vehicle’s PEO function. By using geographical data to predict the road ahead, PEO intelligently switches between the electric motor and gasoline engine to maximize fuel economy throughout the journey. This also minimizes tailpipe emissions in urban areas.
Whichever mode you are driving in, once you lift your foot off the accelerator in your electric hybrid, the intelligent regenerative braking system comfortably slows the vehicle down while converting the power generated to optimize the battery’s range. Regenerative braking increases the amount of power harvested.
