Main parts of the Hybrid4 system
The HDi Diesel engine - 1
, located at the front,
drives the front wheels and provides most of
the power needed to drive the vehicle.
s fitted with the Stop & Start
system - 5which recharges the batteries and provides
additional power when needed (in 4x4 mode).
e electric motor - 2
, located at the
rear, drives the rear wheels on its own, or
supplements the Diesel engine, according to
the hybrid mode selected.
It recovers energy and charges the batteries
during phases of deceleration of the vehicle
and is active up to 70 mph
A 200 V NI-MH hi
gh voltage battery - 3,provides a source of energy for the rear electric
Its charging rate is managed automatically by
the vehicle during phases of deceleration.It is located in a compar tment in the boot, access to which is restricted to trained servicetechnicians.
y state of charge
is indicated by 8 horizontal or vertical bars (depending on the screen).
e conventional battery, located under the ybonnet, powers the vehicle's 12 V systems. It is recharged automatically by the high voltage

200 V high voltage battery
The 200 V high voltage battery cannot be
recharged from a mains supply.
The battery is Ni-MH (Nickel Metal Hydride)
and is located below the boot floor, close to the electric motor.
The battery is charged when the vehicle
decelerates, the electric motor then becomes
a generator and conver ts kinetic energy into
electrical energy (except if the speed of the
vehicle is above 70 mph (120 km/h)).
The battery is not recharged from a mains
The battery may also be charged automatically
when required by the Stop & Start system of
the Diesel engine.
y allows the use of "free" energy.
The battery charging time is very short and iscontinuous.
A discharged battery (following ZEV running or
high load, for example) will quickly return to astate of charge sufficient for full operation of the
different hybrid modes.
Thecharging takes place automatically
when driving. The energy recovery can be faster during deceleration.
The average state of charge is 4 to 5 bars, so
preserving a margin for energy recovery when
deceleration of going downhill (free energy).
To preser ve the ser vice life of thebattery, the level of charge never falls below 20 %, even if a level of 0 bars is displayed after ZEV running. Where the battery is close to maximum, vehicle deceleration with your foot off the accelerator pedal will be at a lower level.

Lighting left on audible signal
An audible signal when a front door
is opened warns the driver that the vehicle's exterior lighting is on, with theignition off and in manual lighting mode.
In this case, switching off the lighting stops the audible signal.
With the ignition off, if the dipped headlamps remain on, the vehicle goes into "ECO" mode to avoid discharging the battery.
In some weather conditions (e.g. low temperature or humidity), the presence of misting on the internal sur face of theglass of the headlamps and rear lampsis normal; it disappears after the lamps have been on for a few minutes.
The daytime runninglamps can be activated and deactivated via the configuration menu.
The lighting goes off when you switchoff the ignition, but you can always switch it on again using the lighting control stalk.
Daytime running lamps
They come on when the engine is star ted.
Depending on the country of sale or whererequired by regulations, they are used for:
- daytime running lamps in day mode andsidelamps in night mode (they are brighter
when daytime running lamps), or
- sidelamps in day and night mode.

Sit in a normal upright position.
Wear a correctly adjusted seat belt.
Do not leave anything between theoccupants and the airbags (a child, pet,
object...). This could hamper the operation of the airbags or injure the occupants. After an accident or if the vehicle has beenstolen or broken into, have the airbagsystems checked. All work on the airbag system must be carried out by a CITROËN dealer or a qualified workshop.
Even if all of the precautions mentioned are obser ved, a risk of injury or of minor burns to the head, chest or arms when an airbag is deployed cannot be ruled out. Thebag inflates almost instantly (within a few milliseconds) then deflates within the sametime discharging the hot gas via openings provided for this purpose.
Use only approved covers on the seats, compatible with the deployment the lateral airbags. For information on the range of seatcovers suitable for your vehicle, you can contact a CITROËN dealer (see "Practical information - § Accessories"). Do not fix or attach anything to the seat backs (clothing...). This could cause injuryto the chest or arms if the lateral airbag isdeployed.Do not sit with the upper par t of the body anynearer to the door than necessary.
Do not drive holding the steering wheel by its spokes or resting your hands on the centre part of the wheel.
Passengers must not place their feet on thedashboard.
If possible, do not smoke as deployment of the airbags can cause burns or the risk of injury from a cigarette or pipe.
Never remove or pierce the steering wheel or hit it violently.
Do not fix or attach anything to the roof.This could cause injury to the head if thecurtain airbag is deployed. If fitted on your vehicle, do not remove thegrab handles installed on the roof, they play a par t in securing the cur tain airbags.
For the airbags to be fully effective, observe the following safety rules:

12 V battery
The presence of this label indicatesthe use of a 12 V lead-acid battery withspecial technology and specification, for which the involvement of a CITROËN dealer or qualified workshop is requiredwhen replacing or disconnecting thebattery.
Failure to observe this recommendation may cause premature wear of thebattery. The battery is located under the bonnet.

Do not apply excessive force on thetab as locking will not be possible if the clamp is not positioned correctly; star tthe procedure again.
Before doing any work on your vehicle,
switch off the ignition ( Ready
lamp off)to avoid any risk of injury resulting fromautomatic operation of the engine. Y
our vehicle is fitted with a conventional 12 V
battery, located under the bonnet, in addition
to the hi
gh voltage battery used by the hybrid system.
In cer tain conditions, if the 12 V battery is
too discharged to activate the hybrid system, recharging from another conventional 12 V battery is possible.
Do not carry out this recharge if the Readylamp is on. Procedure

After refitting the battery, the Stop &Start system will only be active after several hours depending on the climaticconditions and the state of charge of the battery (up to about 8 hours). When
your vehicle's battery is discharged, the engine can be star ted using a slave battery(external or on another vehicle) and jump leadcables.
Starting using another
First check that the slave battery has a nominal voltage of 12 V and a capacity at least equal to that of the discharged battery. Do not try to star t the engine byconnecting a battery charger.
Do not disconnect the (+) terminal when the engine is running.
)Connect the red cable to the positive
(+) of the flat battery A , then to the positive terminal (+) of the slave battery B. )Connect one end of the green or blackcable to the negative terminal (-) of the slave battery B
(or ear th point on the other
vehicle). )Connect the other end of the green or black cable to the ear th point Con the broken
down vehicle (or on the engine mounting). )Star t the engine of the vehicle with the good
battery and leave it running for a few minutes.
) Operate the star ter on the broken down
vehicle and let the engine run
If the engine does not star t straight away, switch off the ignition and wait a few
moments before trying again. ) Wait until the engine returns to idle then
disconnect the jump lead cables in the reverse order.
) Disconnect the battery from the vehicle. )
Follow the instructions for use provided by
the manufacturer of the charger. ) Connect the battery starting with the negative terminal (-). )
Check that the terminals and connectors
are clean. If they are covered with sulphate (whitish or greenish deposit), remove themand clean them.
