Not quite sure, but does 0.5 seconds really matter in a car like this that isn't sub 6.0 seconds?I'm assuming the 0-60 at 9.8 sec is in normal mode and some reviews indicate 10.3 sec. Not sure how they time it, but curious what the 0-60 is in sport mode. Anyone care to time it?
Disagree here. The battery doesn't deliver full power at eco or Normal. There is a notable difference when you accelerate in Sport mode VS Normal mode.Official numbers are:
9.8 sec 0-60mph (0-96km/h), 10.3 sec 0-100km/h (0-62mph).
When you floor the accelerator, it makes no difference if you are in sport, normal or eco mode.
True - the "feel" of the starting acceleration definitely is faster but once you are moving the mid-range acceleration (20-40 mph) is still pretty meager and i think this accounts for why the 0-60mph numbers still suck.
Have to disagree.
I agree. This is also what I understood about the hybrid operation.Have to disagree.
In open throttle (when you floor the pedal) the car will give everything it has no matter what mode you are in.
True, in sport mode the throttle mapping is much more sensitive and you get the full 650V to MG2 from the start, the result is a sporty feel, however, at open throttle you get the full 650V in any mode you are in, and throttle mapping has no meaning anymore.
This is all academic for me anyways, as I have never floored the pedal! I chose the CT for other reasons.
But when you go from theory to practice, the response is definitly not the same in Eco, normal or Sport.I agree. This is also what I understood about the hybrid operation.
