Speed limiter

A speed limiter (SL1) works by means of the driver controlling the speed with the accelerator pedal, but the driver is prevented by the speed limiter from mistakenly exceeding a preselected/preset maximum speed.

The function is available in certain markets.

Temporary acceleration

The speed limiter can be temporarily overridden when the accelerator pedal is fully depressed, without the speed limiter first having to be set in standby mode - e.g. to be able to quickly accelerate the car out of a situation.

In which case, proceed as follows:
Fully depress the accelerator pedal and release it to interrupt acceleration when the desired speed has been reached.
In this mode, the speed limiter is still activated and the driver display's symbol is therefore illuminated.
Fully release the accelerator pedal when the temporary acceleration is finished.
The car is then electric motor-braked automatically to below the last stored maximum speed.

Steep roads

On steep hills, the speed limiter's braking effect may be inadequate and the stored maximum speed may be exceeded.


  • The function is supplementary driver support intended to facilitate driving and make it safer – it cannot handle all situations in all traffic, weather and road conditions.
  • The driver is advised to read all sections in the Manual that relate to this function to learn about factors such as its limitations and what the driver should be aware of before using the system.
  • Driver support functions are not a substitute for the driver's attention and judgement. The driver is always responsible for ensuring the car is driven in a safe manner, at the appropriate speed, with an appropriate distance to other vehicles, and in accordance with current traffic rules and regulations.
