It’s about Range Management. You’ll always see how much charge is left,
and how many miles remain in your driving range. The power meter instantly
displays power consumption and regeneration. Driving efficiently? The eco
indicator rewards you with a virtual forest. You can check the trip computer
to see how much time is needed for a full charge, or switch settings to see
your efficiency in miles/kWh. With the pertinent driving data right in front of
you, you’ll easily manage trips and optimize performance.
