There's another string running on this, but yes, it can be done. Need to drive allowing it to charge or using the regenerative braking gear if you get a long enough run up. Emptying it tho won't happen as it's designed to fire up engine to recharge if it gets low. All that said, yes it can become an obsession but don't drive into anyone whilst looking at the screen!
Happy driving

Yeah, I did it, was going to take a pic but I was driving at the time :D

Although I must add that I was driving down the side of a very steep hill in B, wife wasn't that impressed :lol: and even after trying to explain it to her she still didn't get it :lol: :lol:

For me that's a daily problem. I live in Tenerife, exactly 1000 over sea level. I could charge up to three batteries every day just by driving Downhill to town. :lol:

It's quite annoying because once you reach the full battery capacity you cannot drive on EV until the batteries cool down.

3000 miles now on mine, mixed driving, and never seen a full charge on my central display.

I'm also concerned about the safety aspect of the exposed battery being under the back seat with a large air vent in the footwell. Shirley this is a hazard potential, if it leaks gas, or just explodes. How on earth did this pass safety regulations.

Why you are still driving it if it is a hazard potental ;)
The hybrid concept from Toyota runs over 20 years now.
The hybrid system has passed the safety regulations in the US (these are much better then in Europ)
Have you any knowledge about an explosion or gas leak.
