The i-ELOOP display on your dashboard (right-hand display) shows how much electricity you're generating when you decelerate, and how much charge you have.
This is our first car to feature i-ELOOP, a system we developed to power the electrics using energy generated when the car decelerates. i-ELOOP contributes to a significant fuel economy improvement - especially as our unconventional capacitor stores and releases electricity more quickly, efficiently and durably than other systems.
Around 10% of an engine's power is usually converted to electricity to power a car's electrics. With i-ELOOP, the engine doesn't have to create electricity while propelling the car. And with 100% of engine power used for propulsion, this improves the car's fuel efficiency and environmental performance.

Watch our video to see how the i-stop system operates.
i-stop improves your car's environmental performance by switching off your engine when you're idling in traffic. You'll hardly notice this happen because i-stop restarts your engine more quickly and smoothly than most stop-start systems. So your engine's ready to go as soon as you want it. i-stop is available with both our automatic and manual transmissions.
The winner of several technology awards, this is the world's only start-stop system that uses combustion energy to restart. Just one more way that we defy convention.
