ECO PRO speed limit

Hi all. Just a quick question. In my F15 I use ECO PRO quite often when during long boring highway trips. It works up to 130 km/h. Then tells me to slow down. I suppose there's a similar concept in G05. Is it still 130 km/h or have they changed it?

You can set it to whatever you want

Are you saying that you can be driving 160 km/h and ECO PRO will still be on and fine with that?

You can set the upper limit for ECO PRO to whatever you want, including turning off the limit.

However, driving above 130 km/h in ECO PRO is no different than driving in Comfort. No fuel savings. Maybe just a bit, when you are accelerating.

Eco pro setting regulates motor management and acceleration but also seat heating an AC settings. I have not activated those because in the summer the AC can't get the car cold enough in eco pro.

You can also set a maximum speed because it really makes a difference in consumption driving 140 vs 120. Driving above 130 is not considered ecological anymore and the dash turns grey instead of blue to remind you of that.

Probably eco pro makes most sense in city driving with a lot of accelerations because it forces you to accelerate less.

I don't think that driving 2 hours with the same speed and some accelerations will differ much between eco pro and adaptive. And I prefere having full potential if I want to accelerate.

This is exactly what I've meant. It's still 130, right? Thank you.

Otherwise, this mode makes sense for me sometimes. And sometimes it doesn't. Throttle becomes softer, makes driving the car less fun and motivates you becoming less aggressive.
