Hybrid4 mode selector
The selector allows the user to choose between 4 drive modes for the vehicle.
Turn the dial to the ri
ght or left; the mode selected is confirmed by illumination of the corresponding indicator.
ZEVmode, to force electric runnin
tmode, to make use of the maximum
performance of the vehicle.
4WDmode, to force the vehicle into 4x4 mode.
AUTOmode, for normal use and optimised fuelconsumption.
On star ting the vehicle: with the gear selector in position N, press the brake pedal and press
the STA R T/STOP button to activate the hybrid system.
This lamp comes on when the vehicle is ready
to move off ("Auto" mode is on by default) andso the driver can press the accelerator.
This lamp comes on more or less instantly but may take a few seconds in some cases (inparticular, the time needed for pre-heating the
Diesel engine in cold weather or, for example,
in energy economy mode, ...).
With the vehicle stationary, press the STA R T/STOP button and check that the Readylampyis off when leaving the vehicle, other wise thehybrid system will still be active.

4WD mode **
This mode allows more dynamic driving byproviding additional performance.Vehicle acceleration and pick-up are
maximised by using the capacity of the electric
motor, supplementing the power of the Diesel
This mode manages the progressiveness of theaccelerator, the electronic gearbox and the use of the electric motor.
In Sport mode:
- The electric motor can be used up to 70 mph (120 km/h).
This mode provides additional traction
low speed by driving all 4 wheels of the vehicle continuously: the Diesel engine (front wheel
drive) and the electric motor (rear wheel drive)operate simultaneously and permanently.
Their coupling is managed electronically tooptimise traction on slippery sur faces.
In 4WD mode:
- Power for the electric motor is provided,
f needed, by the alternator-star ter motor
of the front engine. The Diesel engine
- The additional traction from the electricmotor is available up to 75 mph (120 km/h).
In ZEV m
- The accelerator control is progressive.
- Range and acceleration capacity are
limited. The maximum speed possible is
around 36 mph (60 km/h).
- Under high load or a priority requirement causing the star t of the Diesel engine, thesystem changes automatically to AUTO mode.I
f the conditions do not allow this mode, a message that the "electricmode is not currently available"appears in the screen. The ZEV
warning lamp flashes for a few seconds then goes off and the selector comes on in AUTO.
This mode should be used on snowcovered roads or difficult ground (mud, sand, ...). In this mode, in severe conditionsand if the circumstances allow, it isrecommended that you acceleratestrongly to ensure that you move off andavoid any risk of getting stuck.

Energy consumption / generation indicator
The indicator dial provides real time information
on the total power used, combining electric and
It comprises three main zones.
Zone which indicates that the vehicle is optimising its energy consumption
, electric, Diesel or a combination of both.
This zone corresponds to phases of electric
running as well as to phases of optimum use of
the Diesel engine, which are easily accessible
with a suitable driving style (smooth "eco-citizen" driving).
Zone which indicates that the vehicle is
in electrical energy recovery phase: on ydeceleration, braking or foot off the accelerator, ...
This allows the high voltage battery to be
recharged using "free" energy which can then be reused
for future energy requirements.

Consumption of your hybrid in the screen
Average consumption over the last 5 minutes.
"60 % H
ybrid Use" corresponds to 60 % of the cumulative running time of the electric motor in the various Modes (Auto, ZEV, Sport or 4WD) and 40 % of the time with the Diesel engine only (with no contribution from the hybrid system).
For more information on the trip computer, refer tothe corresponding section.
Resetting the history
With the hybrid system active, when trip 2 displayed, press
the control for 2 seconds to reset the history to zero.
