Hi everyone!

I picked up my Audi Q3 1.5 TFSI Black Edition on Monday. It seems the MHEV is under the boot floor meaning that the boot floor can’t be lowered.
My question is, how do I know when the MHEV is working and what will “feel” different to me when it’s running? There’s nothing on the MMI or the handbook which is very strange? I’d expect to see some kind of information relating to this…

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum iRobbie.

To your question - I don't think, and that was the Audi intention, that you will notice the mild hybrid technology other than the car being more fuel efficient.

So what options did you choose for the car when you ordered it?

Hi, welcome to the club!

As I understand it John's right, a mild hybrid simply gets some discreet assistance from the onboard battery/charging/motor system so there will be nothing to either notice or control, just a few more mpgs.

Hi and welcome.

The only time you will notice anything is if it goes wrong and a warning light comes up on the dash. At least you can move the rear seat(s) to give more room.
