IS300h engine revving between ramps

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Just a quick one and it may be totally normal but just wanted to check as I haven’t had the car long 🙂

Noticed that when I slow down to go over a set of ramps, soon as I go over and accelerate lightly but enough for the engine to come on and not just use electric, the engine revs increase as if I were accelerating harder (even if I’m keeping a relatively consistent speed). When I get to the next ramp and reduce speed and go over the same happens when I get back on the throttle. 

Is this normal? It’s a bit annoying I just say because I’m not really accelerating. 

May just be the way yeh CVT works, but just wanted to check as it’s been bugging me.

Yes, it's normal, speed is not related with rpm like in fixed ratio gears transmissions. Depressing pedal is proportional to power you ask.
