In EV mode the motors power the vehicle using electricity from the battery, resulting in zero fuel consumption and zero CO2 emissions. The drive mode is quiet, clean and powerful. Maximum speed is 135km/h. EV Mode = Electric Motor Only.
EV MODE = ELECTRIC MOTOR ONLY.
In Series Hybrid mode the motors power the vehicle using engine-generated electricity. The engine generates electricity to recharge the battery when the level is low and to increase power when accelerating rapidly or going up-hill.
SERIES HYBRID MODE = ELECTRIC MOTOR + PETROL ENGINE ASSISTANCE.
In Parallel Hybrid mode the engine powers the vehicle at high speeds etc, (when engine efficiency is high) with assistance from the motors when extra power is required.
PARALLEL HYBRID MODE = PETROL ENGINE + ELECTRIC MOTOR ASSISTANCE.
