Electric

Electric mode allows the vehicle to drive on pure battery power for short distances. This mode is perfect for many daily short commutes.

For example, if your commute to work is short enough you could drive completely on electric power. If your commute is longer and you have an outlet at work, you can use the mobile charger to charge your vehicle so you can continue driving in electric mode on your way home.

European model shown

Hybrid

Hybrid mode offers an efficient blend of both gasoline and electric power, and can help recharge the battery.

Even if you've driven to a destination that uses up your battery's charge, the vehicle can automatically switch between the gas and electric motor, enabling the vehicle to function like a conventional hybrid without concerns about range or having to recharge your vehicle.

European model shown

Charge

Switch to the Charge Battery mode to enable the gasoline-powered engine to recharge the battery.

Charge Battery mode is perfect for when you're driving between destinations. It enables you to recharge the depleted battery while you're driving and be ready to drive on electric power once you've reached your destination. For example, you could drive on a depleted battery on a road trip and have your battery recharged and ready to use by the time you reach your destination.*
