During our first test the Juke Hybrid it manages to move as electric on longer routes and in an urban environment with a significant benefit in fuel economy. Its electric autonomy is achieved as long as the driver does not exceed speeds of 55 km/h, a speed that is common in urban routes and traffic jams. If the system is also used with energy recovery, the battery will always be charged.

In normal conditions, fuel consumption does not exceed 5.5 liters/100km! The Juke Hybrid also features the e-Pedal system , where energy savings benefit from the recovery of the hybrid system. Essentially the e-Pedal as in the Leaf, when activated allows driving to be largely done using the brake only, but not entirely.

Also, the driver has at his disposal the Normal and Sport modes when he wants more power. In terms of performance, its acceleration is covered by 0-100 km/h in 10.1 seconds.
