The system, which switches between electric, hybrid and gasoline driving without any intervention from the driver, has electric driving that provides a quiet journey at the first start; When more intense acceleration is required, it switches to hybrid driving. On journeys that require continuous high-speed travel, such as highways, the system continues with gasoline driving. In all driving types, deceleration energy is recovered with regenerative braking to increase efficiency. Users can also choose between driving modes: Normal, Sport, Eco and the newly added Snow mode.
