E-Mode

With the touch of a button, E-Mode engages the electric motor to give you lots of torque for fast acceleration and totally electric power.

Hybrid Mode

Hybrid mode initially uses your GTE’s electric motor until the petrol engine is needed. This mode can switch effortlessly between the two, depending on which is most suitable, making it perfect for longer journeys.

Charge Mode

Your GTE can use energy from the petrol engine to recharge its lithium-ion battery. This mode is particularly useful if you want to drive electrically later in your journey.

GTE Mode

GTE Mode uses both the petrol engine and electric motor to give a powerful performance with plenty of punch. When engaged, GTE Mode has an imposing engine sound.

Battery Hold Mode

This mode exclusively uses the petrol engine, allowing you to preserve your battery charge.
