     Hydraulic braking

    G20 PHEV, hydraulic braking The brake booster is operated via the driver's foot operation, and the brake actuation is determined by means of the brake pedal angle sensor. Depending on the brak

     Regenerative braking

    The regenerative braking makes possible brake energy regeneration. The electrical machine works here as an alternator and brakes the gears via automatic transmission - propeller shaft - re

     Emergency braking function

    Regenerative braking with help of the drivetrain only effects the rear axle. The brake force on the rear axle must not exceed a specific value in proportion to that on the front axle. This would oth


     Using this Owner's Manual

    Orientation The fastest way to find information on a particular topic is by using the index. An initial overview of the vehicle is provided in the first chapter. Validity of the Owner's Manual Production of the vehicle At the time of production at the plant, the printed Owner's Manual is the most c

     Antifreeze and corrosion inhibitor

    The cooling system of the G20 PHEV is filled with the new antifreeze and corrosion inhibitor Frostox HT-12. The new antifreeze and corrosion inhibitor increases the long-term stability and corrosion protection of the components. It replaces the well-known antifreeze and corrosion inhibitor Glysan
