This is the recommended position for
the best temperature in cold weather.
óThe air flow is directed mainly
towards the footwells.
GThe air flow is directed to all air
vents and the footwells.
This is the recommended position for
the best temperature in hot weather.
JThe air flow is directed mainly
to the dashboard vents.
Turn the controls to the positions W:
– air from the outside;
– maximum temperature;
Using the climate control increases the
speed of demisting.
Adjusting the air temperature
Turn control 2 to obtain the desired
temperature. The further the pointer is
away from the heating stop position,
the higher the temperature will be.
If the outdoor temperature is too high,
the heating decreases automatically.
This limits energy consumption and
maintains the range of the vehicle.
HEATING, AIR-CONDITIONING (2/3)
When the air conditioning system is
used for long periods, it may begin to
feel cold. To increase the temperature,
turn control 2 to the right.

tion and position 4 for maximum ven-
In this position:
– the air conditioning or heating stops automatically even if button 6 is acti-
vated and the warning light remains
– the ventilation speed of air in the passenger compartment is zero;
– there is, however, a slight flow of air when the vehicle is moving.
This position should not normally be

Air recirculation (isolation of
the passenger compartment)
Turn control 1 towards the air recircula-
In these conditions air is taken from the
passenger compartment and is recircu-
lated, with no air being taken from out-
side the vehicle.
Air recirculation operates as
– isolating the passenger compart- ment from the outside air (driving in
polluted areas, unpleasant odours,
– bringing the passenger compartment to the desired temperature as quickly
Prolonged use of this position can
lead to condensation forming on the
side windows and windscreen and
problems due to the use of non-re-
newed air in the passenger com-
We therefore advise you to return to
normal mode (external air) as soon
as the air recirculation function is no
longer required, by turning control 1

AIR CONDITIONING/HEATING: programming (1/2)
Adjusting the programming
This function enables the electric net-
work (and the not the traction battery)
to be used under certain conditions, in
order to obtain a comfortable tempera-
ture prior to using the vehicle.
It triggers the heating in cold weather
and the fan in warm weather.
– the ignition must be switched off;
– the battery charging must be finished for the function to be triggered;
– the vehicle has to be plugged into the mains;
– control 1 must be position
In cold weather (< 0°C), you are rec-
ommended to position control 2 in
air recirculation position. This en-
ables greater efficiency and lower
energy consumption in the passen-
ger compartment ambient tempera-

ADDITIONAL HEATING (1/2)
Depending on the vehicle, the addi-
tional heating is designed to heat the
passenger compartment. Powered
by a dedicated fuel tank (please see
“Additional heating tank” in Section 1),
this increases the comfort level without
reducing vehicle range.
Switching on this additional heating de-
activates other heating methods and
When the fuel reaches the minimum
level, a warning light will come on
on the instrument panel. After a few
minutes of operation, a message on
the instrument panel will tell you that
