  28. 28. Black plate (32,1) NOTE: . Before driving, compare the driving distance to the destination displayed on the navigation screen with the estimated driving range shown on the meter. Determine if it will be necessary to charge the Li-ion battery before or while driving to your planned destina- tion. . If it is necessary to charge the Li-ion battery, use the navigation system to search for available charging stations on your planned driving route. STARTING YOUR VEHICLE 1. Depress the brake pedal. 2. Press the power switch. 3. Check that the READY to drive indicator light illuminates and the start up sound is audible. See “READY to drive indicator light” in the “2. Instruments and controls” section. 4. If route guidance is necessary, enter the destination in the navigation system. See LEAF Navigation System Owner’s Manual. 5. Check the Li-ion battery level and the estimated driving range shown on the meter. See “Driving range” in the “2. Instruments and controls” section.EV-14 EV Overview X12G-D (EV)_NORTH EDITED: 2010/ 11/ 18

  30. 30. Black plate (34,1)The ECO position helps extend vehicle range byproviding more regenerative brake than the D(Drive) position. The ECO position also helpsreduce power consumption by reducing accel-eration when compared to the same acceleratorpedal position in the D (Drive) position andreduces the power provided to the heating andair conditioner system.NOTE:The regenerative brake converts the vehi-cle’s forward motion to electric power tohelp slow the vehicle. While the vehicle is being driven you can check your own ECO drive level on the ECO indicator. See “ECO indicator” in the “2.
