The multi-plate clutch regulates the distribution of drive force between the rear axle and the front axle. Driving conditions are constantly monitored, enabling the system to respond to a variety of situations. Sensors check, among other variables, the rotation speeds of all four wheels, the longitudinal and lateral acceleration of the vehicle, and the steering angle. If the rear wheels threaten to spin under acceleration, a greater proportion of drive force is distributed to the front by a more powerful engagement of the multi-plate clutch.
* The published consumption (l/100km and Wh/km), emissions (g/km) and kilometre (km) range figures are determined by
Actual figures will vary as they are dependent on many factors, including without limitation: individual driving style, road and traffic conditions, environmental conditions, fuel quality, a vehicle’s or battery’s condition, load and use. Extra features and accessories (eg: equipment, wheels or tyres used etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics and can also affect the consumption, emission, range and performance values of a vehicle. For hybrid or electric vehicles, published charging times (hour/minutes) are estimated using the vehicle’s charging equipment and European charging facilities, with the battery temperature in optimum condition. CO2 emissions can also be generated at the power source when vehicles are being recharged, unless 100% renewable energy is used.
Generally, consumption, emissions, kilometre range and charging times will vary from the published figures in real world Australian driving and charging conditions. Published figures should only be used for the purpose of comparison between vehicles. Please contact an Official
