Anyone able to figure out what the charts and graphs mean on the "Natural Mode Performance Display" and the "Advanced Efficiency Mode Performance Display" on the infotainment system? There's nothing in the manual to explain them, other than the totally worthless: "The 'Performance' screen graphically displays some parameters closely
related to the vehicle consumption."

The bar graph appears to be MPG over either distance or time--not clear. The three half-circle dials on the Efficiency Mode screen have icons that make me think they relate to forward, reverse (or braking?), and shifting. Dunno.

Any ideas?

Actually, what the manual says is: "The screen graphically reproduces some parameters closely linked to the efficiency of the driving style, with a view to limiting consumption."

That's when you're in Natural mode. When you're in Advanced Efficiency mode (the second of your two images), the description is: "The three center icons on the screen indicate the effectiveness of the driving style, linked to the following parameters: acceleration, deceleration and gear shifts, with a view to limiting consumption. The bar below the icons shows current consumption and the green line represents the optimal area. The globe lights up gradually according to lower consumption"

In Dynamic mode the display changes again: "The displayed parameters are related to vehicle stability, the graphs illustrate the trend of the longitudinal/lateral accelerations (G-meter infomation), considering gravity acceleration as a reference unit. Lateral acceleration peaks are also indicated."

Finally, in Race mode you get the same description and display as with Dynamic.

In all the modes, the number at the lower right is your range.

Natural is a straightforward graph of fuel efficiency, showing the last 20 minutes. Each bar represents your average fuel efficiency for one minute, the rightmost bar is the most recent minute.
Advanced Efficiency is how good your acceleration, deceleration and gear selection is. A score of 100 is the best the computer thinks is achievable, so the aim is to get 100 in each category. You can see a more detailed version of this display on the main screen by going into Apps, then Efficiency.

Can confirm all the above. The efficiency mode info is for acc, dec, and gearing. Note on the gearing though, when driving in Auto, it'll always be 100 because the engine is always going to shift when it thinks it's most efficient. The little globe as you can see in the picture is all sparkly. That changes based on the 'scores' you're getting. When driving like a sane person in eco-mode with high scores, you can see it's all nice and sparkly - yay environment! But if you're in manual, driving like a mad man, it tends to turn a bit brown, as if it's saying "shame on you, save the trees."

In the efficiency app on the infotainment system, you can see a bit more info. The mileage screen will have colors above the graph to show you what driving mode you were in(DNAR) while making that mileage. The efficiency screen just gets a bit expanded with actual numbers.

oohhh a video game on my instrument cluster yipee:grin2:...sorry I'll show myself out:D
really too much info though....
