During braking, the kinetic energy is transformed into heat, which is then uselessly radiated into the environment. To help you get part of this energy back, we’ve developed the brake energy recovery system, which uses an intelligent alternator to store the energy in the battery during deceleration and then uses it to lower the engine load by the alternator, reducing fuel consumption.

The right choice of gear ratio can save fuel and increase driving comfort at the same time. Lower engine speeds result in lower fuel consumption and quieter engine operation.
The gear change recommendation is presented on the display in the instrument cluster. The symbol in the upper right corner of the display confirms the right choice of gear ratio, or recommends changing it up or down.
