Dynamic and efficient.
Hybrid vehicles reduce fuel consumption and increase driving enjoyment thanks to intelligent use of kinetic energy.
In the hybrid drive system, the electric motor assists the internal combustion engine when starting off (start/stop function) or when 'gliding', for example. The battery is charged in overrun mode or during braking (recuperation). Short distances or parking manoeuvres can be completed on electric power alone.
- Reduces fuel consumption.
- Charges the battery with kinetic energy during recuperation.
- Extra boost, e.g. for overtaking
