■Tachometer Hybrid System Indicator switches to the tachometer when driving mode is in Sport mode. The settings of the tachometer display can be changed on the multi-information display.

■Engine speed On hybrid vehicles, engine speed is precisely controlled in order to help improve fuel efficiency and reduce exhaust emissions, etc.

There are times when the engine speed that is displayed may differ even when vehicle operation and driving conditions are the same.

■Outside temperature display

■Pop-up display In some situations, a pop-up display will be temporarily displayed on the multi-information display or the odometer/trip meter/maintenance required information screen.

The pop-up display function can be set on/off.

■Liquid crystal display Small spots or light spots may appear on the display. This phenomenon is characteristic of liquid crystal displays, and there is no problem continuing to use the display.

■Customization The meter display can be customized on the multi-information display.

WARNING

■The information display at low temperatures Allow the interior of the vehicle to warm up before using the liquid crystal information display. At extremely low temperatures, the information display monitor may respond slowly, and display changes may be delayed.

For example, there is a lag between the driver's shifting and the new gear number appearing on the display. This lag could cause the driver to downshift again, causing rapid and excessive engine braking and possibly an accident resulting in personal death or injury.

NOTICE
