Stopping the engine
With the engine running, turn the key
back to the “Stop” position St. Warning
Ṑ goes out.
when parking or stopping
Never leave an animal,
child or adult who is not self-suffi-
cient alone in your vehicle, even for
a short time.
They may pose a risk to themselves
or to others by starting the engine,
activating equipment such as the
electric windows or locking the
doors, for example.
Also, in hot and/or sunny weather,
please remember that the tempera-
ture inside the passenger compart-
ment increases very quickly.
RISK OF DEATH OR SERIOUS
Never switch off the igni-
tion before the vehicle has
come to a complete stop.
Switching off the engine di-
sables the assistance equipment:
brakes, power-assisted steering,
etc., and the passive safety devices
such as airbagsand pretensioners.

GEAR CONTROL (2/2)/HANDBRAKE
Parking the vehicle
When the vehicle is stopped, move the
lever to position P while keeping your
foot on the brake pedal: the gearbox is
in neutral and the drive wheels are me-
chanically locked by the driveshaft.
Apply the handbrake.
In the event an impact to
the underside of the vehicle
(e.g.: striking a post, raised
kerb or other street furni-
ture), this may result in damage to
the vehicle (e.g.: twisted axle), the
electrical circuit or the traction bat-
Do not touch the circuit elements or
any fluids or liquids.
To prevent any risk of accident,
have your vehicle checked by an
Risk of serious injury or electric
shock and risk to life.
When setting off , if the lever is locked
in position P even though you are
pressing the brake pedal, the lever
can be released manually. To do this,
unclip the base of the lever and simulta-
neously press at location 4 and the un-
locking button 6 on the lever.
When stationary and de-
pending on the slope and/or
vehicle load, it may be nec-
essary to pull up the hand-
brake at least two extra notches and
engage position P.
Make sure that the hand-
brake is properly released
when driving (red indicator

DRIVING ADVICE, ECO-DRIVING (1/2)
The vehicle range depends on vehicle
usage conditions, equipment fitted and
the user’s driving style. To optimise the
energy consumption, please refer to
the following advice.
Depending on the vehicle, you will be
provided with functions which enable
you to lower the energy consumption:
– ECO mode, activated by the ECO button;
– charge meter.
The ECO function optimises vehicle
range by limiting engine performance.
It acts upon certain power consuming
systems in the vehicle (heating, air con-
ditioning, power-assisted steering etc.)
and on certain driving actions (acceler-
ation, cruise control, deceleration etc.). Activating the function
Press switch 1.
2 comes on the instru-
While driving, it is possible to exit the
ECO mode temporarily in order to im-
prove engine performance.
To do this, press the accelerator pedal
firmly and fully.
ECO mode is reactivated when you
take pressure off the accelerator pedal.
Disabling the function
Press switch 1.
Warning light 2 goes out on the instru-
The cruise control switches to
standby each time the ECO mode
is activated or deactivated. Please
refer to the information on “Cruise
control/speed limiter: cruise control
function” in Section 2.

Energy recovery features
The motor generates a more significant
engine brake than a conventional vehi-
After a maximum charge for the traction
battery and during the first few miles
when driving the vehicle, the engine
brake is temporarily reduced. Please
adapt your driving style accordingly.
“Neutral” 0 usage zone
Indicates nil consumption.Charge meter(on the instrument panel)
The charge meter gives the driver a
real-time view of the vehicle’s energy
recovery or consumption.
“Energy recovery” usage zone A
When driving, if you lift your foot off the
accelerator pedal or apply the brake,
the motor generates electrical current
during deceleration, and this energy is
used to slow down the vehicle and re-
charge the traction battery.
usage zone B
The traction battery supplies the elec-
trical energy required for the motor to
move the vehicle.
“Consumption not recommended”
usage zone C
Indicates high energy consumption.

VEHICLE RANGE: recommendations (1/2)
The vehicle range is approved for a
mixed NEDC cycle (New European
In real usage, the range of an electric
vehicle may vary depending on several
factors over which you have partial con-
trol, which may make a considerable
difference to the vehicle range. These
– speed and driving style;
– type of road;
– heating level;
– vehicle loading.
Furthermore, activating ECO mode en-
ables the vehicle to automatically take
charge of all energy-consuming ele-
ments to reduce their consumption to
the fullest possible extent. Please refer
to the information on “Eco-driving” in
Speed and driving style
High speeds will reduce your vehicle’s
A “sporty” driving style reduces your
vehicle range: opt for a “lighter” driving
style.Drive at a constant speed.
Adapt your driving style to avoid exces-
sive energy consumption. Please refer

your foot off the accelerator pedal in

Page 107 of 232
VEHICLE RANGE: recommendations (2/2)
The use of heating or air conditioning
reduces vehicle range.
Before using the vehicle, opt for “air
conditioning programming” mode to
maintain vehicle range (please refer to
the information on “Heating, air condi-
tioning programming” in Section 3).
When driving, minimise the use of heat-
ing and air conditioning and opt for
using the additional heating (please
refer to the information on “Additional
heating” in Section 3).
An under-inflated tyre increases energy
consumption. Comply with the speci-
fied tyre pressures for your vehicle.
When driving, use tyres made by the
same manufacturer, with the same di-
mensions, type and structure as the
original tyres. The use of non-regula-
tion tyres significantly reduces vehicle
Please see the information on “Tyre
pressure” in Section 4.

Your vehicle has been designed to
emit fewer greenhouse gases (CO2)
while in use, and therefore to consume
less fuel (eg. 140 g/km, equivalent to
5.3 l/100 km for a diesel vehicle).
Our vehicles are also equipped with a
particle filter system including a cata-
lytic converter, an oxygen sensor and
an active carbon filter (the latter pre-
vents vapour from the fuel tank being
released into the open air).
For certain diesel vehicles, this system
also has a particle filter to reduce the
volume of soot particles emitted.

protecting the environment
– Worn parts replaced in the course of routine vehicle maintenance (vehi-
cle battery, oil filter, air filter, batter-
ies, etc.) and oil containers (empty or
filled with used oil) must be disposed
of through specialist organisations. – At the end of the vehicle’s service
life, it should be sent to approved
centres to ensure that it is recycled.
– In all cases, comply with local legis- lation.
Your vehicle is 85% recyclable and
To achieve these objectives, many of
the vehicle components have been de-
signed to enable them to be recycled.
The materials and structures have
been carefully designed to allow these
components to be easily removed and
reprocessed by specialist companies.
In order to preserve raw material re-
sources, this vehicle incorporates nu-
merous parts made from recycled plas-
tics or renewable materials (vegetable
or animal-derived materials such as
cotton or wool).
Your vehicle has been designed with
respect for the environment in mind for
its entire service life: during production,
use and at the end of its life.
This commitment is illustrated by the of
the manufacturer eco² signature.Manufacture
Your vehicle has been manufactured at
a factory which complies with a policy
to reduce the environmental impact

TYRE PRESSURE LOSS WARNING (1/4)
When fitted to the vehicle, this system
notifies the driver if one or more tyres
Each wheel (except for the emergency
spare wheel) has a sensor in the infla-
tion valve which periodically measures
the tyre pressure while driving.
1 comes on to
alert the driver in the event of insuffi-
cient pressure (deflated wheel, punctu-
red tyre, etc.).
Resetting the standard level
for the tyre pressures
This should be done:
– when the standard tyre pressure needs to be changed to adapt to
usage conditions (empty, carrying a
load, motorway driving, etc.);
– after swapping a wheel (however this practice is not recommended);
– after changing a wheel.
It should always be done after checking
the tyre pressure of all four tyres when
Tyre pressures must correspond to the
current usage of the vehicle (empty,
carrying a load, motorway driving, etc.).
This function is an addi-
tional driving aid.
However, the function does
not take the place of the
driver. It cannot, therefore, under
any circumstances replace the vig-
ilance or the responsibility of the
