? What’s the difference between the 5-speed AMT for the hybrid model and the diesel AT?
The AMT was developed specifically for the hybrid models.
It uses mechanic clutch to transmit power.
Compared to a liquid clutch (AT), less power is lost.
It also means that you don’t need a clutch pedal, making it easy to drive.
? Does AMT require special maintenance?
The AMT clutch structure is the same as the current MT, so the maintenance procedure remains the same. Clutch must be replaced accordingly.
? How can I improve the mileage on the hybrid model?
There are techniques to make hybrids more eco-friendly.
The longer the eco lamp is lit up, the better in terms of mileage.
Slowly step on the gas pedal when starting to move.
Try to speed up slowly and gently.
When slowing down, try to make use of the regenerative brake.
Let go of the gas pedal early and slow down gently to charge the battery more efficiently.
