Something that has caught my attention lately and I'm curious how much this is down to programming or learned driver habits and if anyone else has seen this.
But essentially from a dead stop in either selected EV Later or depleted charge hybrid mode once the ICE is completely warmed up and ready to take a load regardless of OAT it seems like EV provides propulsion for maybe a second and then the ICE takes 100% of the load. This is with anywhere between 1-2 bars of accel (I actively limit to 2 bars at all times, it is comfortable everyday accel for me). This is all before getting even up to 5-10mph.
I do understand the EV to ICE threshold completely but as I've understood from other hybrids on the market they've tended to either have more EV leadup time at launch before the ICE kicked in and/or provided additional EV assist along with the ICE at low speed acceleration. At least for mine I have VERY rarely seen this happen and almost always seems to prefer full ICE load at low speed accelerations. This is also regardless of hybrid charge level. If at a higher SOC of course the EV/ICE threshold is raised but the moment the ICE kicks in it seems to immediately go 100% ICE load even under accel.
