The striking supervision cluster features vivid graphics on the highly visible centered display that provides a variety of useful information about the vehicle’s performance. With just a quick glance, the driver can see whether the car is operating with the electric motor or the gasoline engine, instantaneous and average fuel economy, and information about the regenerative battery-charging system. There is even an ECO Level readout that depicts green leaves growing as your driving habits become more fuel efficient.
