ELECTRIC VEHICLE (PHEV) DRIVING MODE
Explore the modes that allow you to choose the optimal way.
OPTIMISING YOUR FUEL ECONOMY
When in the default driving mode (Hybrid) you can optimise fuel economy or battery charge by utilising one of two alternative charge management functions:
PREDICTIVE ENERGY OPTIMISATION (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 petrol engine to maximise fuel economy throughout the journey. This also minimises tailpipe emissions in urban areas.
Whichever mode you are driving in, once you lift your foot off the accelerator in your Plug-in Electric Hybrid, the intelligent regenerative braking system comfortably slows the vehicle down while converting the power generated to optimise the battery’s range. Applying the brake increases the amount of power harvested.
