Hi all,

Quick question. I am due to order the new GTE as my next company car at the end of July mainly due to the very low company car tax it offers. I won't be charging it on a regular basis as I am not really going for the efficiency benefits as I don't pay for the fuel but was wondering if the battery is depleated will the car still perform in GTE mode and provide full bhp and boost? I can't seem to find the answer to this anywhere online. Thanks in advance

I will post an update when I have done some more tests but my initial thoughts here are the battery still seems to deliver in certain scenarios even though its on 0%.

I would expect you will get a single kick down overtake in but then it will be depleted.

This will also depend on how much brake regen you had in recent period of 0%.

Yes it effects performance, but if fuel is no object you can put it in battery charge mode to keep battery topped up till its needed for GTE (or nutter button as my wife calls it :D )
