Simply switch between HEV (Hybrid) and EV (Electric) modes via the drive mode switch. By default, the Plug-in runs in EV mode, and is powered entirely by the electric motor. And when additional power is required, such as to provide heating during start-up, when driving up steep hills and under hard acceleration, the system will temporarily switch to HEV (Hybrid) mode.
HEV (Hybrid) mode is automatically activated when the high-voltage battery is depleted, or when manual mode (Sport drive mode) is selected via the gear lever or paddle shifters.
