EV Drive Mode indicator
In EV Drive Mode, the electric motor, powered by the hybrid battery, is used to drive the vehicle. This mode allows you to drive in residential areas late at night, or in indoor parking lots, etc., without concern for noises and exhaust gas emissions. When EV Drive Mode is turned on, the EV Drive Mode indicator will come on. Pressing the switch when in EV Drive Mode will return the vehicle to normal driving (using the gasoline engine and electric motor).
