Hybrid gauge showing boost


2007 Saturn Aura Green Line under hybrid boost

Under hard acceleration (notice the tach @5500 RPM), the hybrid system gives substantial boost (hybrid gauge at far right showing needle in assist range). Under most cruising and acceleration conditions though, the boost is very mild.
