E-POWER mode is activated by default. It allows driving purely on electric power up to a speed of approx. 78 mph (125 km/h) and a maximum range of approx. 22 miles (36 km).

The electric range depends on the driving style, the climatic conditions and the use of energyintensive loads.

An attentive driving style and restrained use of energy-intensive loads have a positive effect on the electric range available.
