For economical driving, caring for the environment
The fuel consumptionof a vehicle varies greatly:
- according to the driver's style of driving
(moderate, aggressive, fast, ...),
- according to the type of journeys
made (urban, main road, motor way, flowing, heavy traffic, …) and the speed.
Main recommendations for driving economically
Hybrid mode selector
To optimise fuel consumption, use the Automodeof the selector whenever possible (the mode is activated
automatically when starting) including for urban journeys.
This mode optimises the use of the energy sources (internal combustion engine and/or electric) contrary to other modes, which are for use in par ticular cases.
Use the automatic
as much as possible as this optimises gear changes to suit the requirements.
Causes of high consumption and checks
As with any vehicle, limit overloading, wind resistance (windows open above 30 mph (50 km/h), roof rack, loaded or not, …), the use of power consumers (air conditioning, heated seats, heated rear screen, …).
Obser ve the recommendations on checks (regular check of tyre pressures, correct tyre pressures, …) and routine servicing.
Stay in the "eco" zone
displayed in the energy consumption / generation indicator: accelerate gently, drive at steadyspeeds using the speed limiter or cruise control as soon as possible.Use the "charge" zone: anticipate the need to slow down by taking your foot off the accelerator rather than braking.
The movement of the energy consumption / generation indicator needle (into the "charge" zone), shows the level of energy recovery.
See the impact of your style of driving and the type of journey by reviewing the history of your energy consumption.Refer to the "Multifunction screens" section.
