PREDICTIVE ENERGY OPTIMISATION

The predictive energy optimisation feature uses the current route information from the vehicle's navigation system to enhance the hybrid system operation. Use of the stored hybrid battery charge is balanced across the route, to help improve the potential fuel economy. For example, electric motor use is maximised during the low speed sections of the route.

Automatic operation of the predictive energy optimisation feature occurs when:

  • The route for the current journey is entered into the vehicle’s navigation system. See SETTING A DESTINATION.

  • Either the ECO or the comfort driving program is enabled. See TERRAIN RESPONSE OPERATION.

    NOTES

    The predictive energy optimisation feature also operates if the AUTO driving program is enabled and the vehicle detects on-road driving.

The My EV menu screen displays a green light ahead of the vehicle image when the predictive energy optimisation feature is available. See MY ELECTRIC VEHICLE (EV).

The predictive energy optimisation feature is suspended in the following events:

  • Insufficient hybrid battery charge.

  • The transmission is engaged in Sport (S).

  • Gear changes via the steering wheel gearshift paddles.

  • The vehicle detects off-road driving.
