clutch is connected, HV motor starting the engine by the HV battery power. Conventional starter motor is not installed.
2 - At starting
at starting, the engine runs at + HV motors. Because the output of the engine is reduced, contributing significantly to the fuel consumption. In addition, ECO mode is selected, the condition of the battery capacity, etc. * 1 to start only if HV motor is now ready.
How to start switching automatically depending on battery capacity
according to the capacity, for example, when the battery capacity is low, automatic switching to the "start engine" from the "start engine + HV motor" of the original.
3 - During acceleration
the clutch is connected again, to run parallel with the HV motor and engine. achieve both fuel-efficient and powerful driving motor that assists the engine.
4 - Traveling at constant
speed is stable, with only the engine running and driving becomes steady low fuel consumption.
Preferential acceleration performance "PWR" modeFuel efficiency priority "ECO mode" In addition to the constant traveling, "Power Mode" in response to driving that require power such as hill and mountain passes. "Eco-Mode" to contribute to the further improvement of fuel efficiency in travel and urban residential areas. By manipulating the driving mode selector switch, you can select each mode.
5 - Deceleration
to convert deceleration energy into electric energy to charge the HV battery. Again, the clutch will be automatically disconnected, you can recover the energy more efficiently.
6 - When the vehicle is stopped
and the stop, automatically stop the engine by idling stop function. When moving off, I will start again with just your foot off the brake pedal.
