We explore in detail below.

There was an briefing from Mr. Yoshiyuki — Managing Officer, — before the drive

EV Drive . off / low speeds: Solely powered by the motor (Li-Ion battery). is therefore, no conventional ignition Just a start button for the motor alone.

Hybrid . Hybrid mode. For mid-range / speeds. Both motors in tandem. The petrol motor the electric motor, which to drive the wheels.
