The i-MMD system decides how to utilize gas and electric energy in the most effective manner, meaning there’s not any need on the motorist to correct between both driving manners; EV Drive, Hybrid Drive and Engine Drive. In Hybrid Drive, the gas engine provides power to the electrical generator engine, which then delivers electricity to the electrical propulsion motor. Within this manner, surplus power from the gas engine is redirected back through the generator engine to recharge the battery package. In Engine Drive, the brakes are straight driven by the gas engine, using an ‘on-demand’ summit power ‘boost’ accessible in the electrical propulsion motor.

In the majority of urban riding situations, the vehicle will proceed between Hybrid Drive and EV Drive for optimal efficiency. Engine Drive is participated as necessary for lively acceleration and for effective street driving.
