DRIVING ADVICE, ECO-DRIVING
Range is accredited according to a standard regulatory method. Identical for all manufacturers, this enables vehicles to be compared with one another.
Range in real time depends on vehicle usage conditions, equipment fitted and the user’s driving style. To optimise range, please refer to the following advice.
Depending on the versions, you will be provided with functions which enable you to lower energy consumption:
- on the instrument panel:
- the power meter;
- the driving style indicator;
- on the multimedia screen:
- data relating to your energy consumption;
- an energy consumption graph;
- scores based on your driving style;
- Eco driving advice;
- a route planner;
- an ECO driving mode.
(on the instrument panel)
The power meter gives the driver a real-time view of the vehicle’s energy 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 recharge the traction battery. REGENERATIVE BRAKING SYSTEM.
Optimum use zone 0
Indicates nil consumption.
“Recommended consumption” usage zone B
The traction battery supplies the electrical energy required for the motor to move the vehicle.
“Consumption not recommended” usage zone C
Indicates high energy consumption.
The presence and display of this information depends on the type of ambiance selected DISPLAYS AND INDICATORS.
Driving style indicator
Informs you about the driving style adopted in real time. This is shown by the 1 warning light.
You can display the driving style indicator by repeatedly pressing up/down on the switch 2.
The larger the circle 1 in the green area, the better your speed, acceleration and anticipation is: your driving is economical.
The smaller the circle 1 in the orange area, the poorer your speed, acceleration and anticipation is: your driving is not economical.
If you regularly follow this indicator, you will increase your vehicle’s electrical range.
ECO mode is a function that optimises vehicle range. It acts on certain energy-consuming systems (air conditioning, etc.) and on the vehicle's behaviour (acceleration, cruise control, deceleration, etc.)
Activation/deactivation from the multimedia screen 3
To activate or deactivate the function, refer to the multimedia instructions.
While driving, it is possible to exit the ECO mode temporarily in order to improve engine performance.
To do this, press the accelerator pedal firmly and fully. ECO mode is reactivated when you take pressure off the accelerator pedal.
For vehicles fitted with this, once the engine is switched off, a Journey Record is displayed on the multimedia screen 3. This record shows the information relating to your last journey:
- average energy consumption;
- number of miles/kilometres travelled;
- an overall grade taking into account acceleration, braking anticipation and your skill in managing speed;
- advice to enable you to improve your rating.
Please refer to the multimedia instructions for further information.
Using the information available on your navigation system (traffic information, nearest charging station, etc.) makes it easy to manage your journey.
The cruise control switches to standby each time the ECO mode is activated or deactivated CRUISE CONTROL.
With ECO mode on, the vehicle speed is limited to approximately 62 mph (100 km/h).
