Hybrid Battery level

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I've been driving my 2016 camry for 10 days now and done about 1,500kms. 

I was wondering how high does the battery level go in your Energy screen? Mine always looks like it'll never completely fill up with 1 or 2 bars missing from full?

From what I understand the HSD system looks after everything but I'm just wondering if mine doesn't go to Full because it's 2nd hand and perhaps the batteries are degraded?  I have nothing to compare it with.

Other than that, it's a fantastic car and I usually get about 5.0l/100Km on my trip to and from work around Melbourne.

 

Thanks.

Hi, I have a new 2019 model and the battery indication is the same as yours, so it seems that's normal.

 

Cheers,

Davo.

Hi,

If you go down a very long steep hill, And use the brakes to keep the needle on the ECO gage within the charging range. You will then be able to see the HV battery get fully charged.

Hi,

I think you will find your car is ok. If you go down a long steep hill, and use the brakes to keep the ECO needle within the charging range on the dial. And start off at the top of the hill at low speed. You may find that it will go up to being near full.
