Eco Hybrid drive

 The hybrid drive

While driving, the parallel hybrid drive saves you fuel, and when you decelerate the energy recovered tops up your high capacity lithium ion battery. The battery then supports the engine when you start driving, as well as when you accelerate. Working in harmony with the Start/Stop function, which switches the engine off when you stop and starts it again when you set off, you get fuel savings of up to 23%.
