Before purchasing my 2019 PHEV, I remember reading that in sport mode the digital display would show a tachometer. In driving the car for a week, I have not seen this happen. Was this ever a thing? Is it still a thing in the 2019 PHEV? How do I get ittttt?

Unfortunately, that doesn't happen. The dash stays exactly the same. Does anyone know if there is a setting or did they leave this out of the PHEV for some unknown reason? Anyone with a PHEV gotten the tach?

Mine is 2018 PHEV and yes, the speed dial changes to the tach dial when you switch into the sport mode (by moving the gear shift to the left of the D position). Just to makes sure, you ARE switching to Sport, not simply pressing the EV/HEV button to shift to HEV mode, right?

My HEV also switches the dash to red in sport mode, either when I tap the shifter to the left, or when I (accidentally) touch the + or - things at the wheel. I don't know what those are for though - manually shifting gears?

Sounds like you have a base PHEV. It does not have an LCD instrument cluster in the dash. Ot has a physical needle for the speedometer.

MSRP of $25k.

Ahhhhhhh, @JBSwiftus ... that's the information I needed. Dang it. That's pretty disappointing, but not worth a couple extra thou to me.

Thanks.

Yes, everyone else, definitely in Sport mode. Apparently base 2019 PHEV doesn't show a tach.

@zladuric, yes, the + and - are for manually shifting gears. They are paddle shifters and they do the same thing as when you move the shifter to the left and move it forward and backward toward the + and -.

I have a base PHEV - no way to show a little tach as I understand. Would have been nice during the break-in period but past that, the computer takes care of rev limiting.
I'd rather have the paddle shifters set regen levels (or the ability to choose a much higher level from the menu system)

Looks like yet another case of “regional differences”. My 2018 PHEV is “base” model for Canada - we have SE and Ultimate - and the cluster switches to the sport mode with tach. Have not checked the 2019 lineup, things might have changed.

Do you have a completely digital display, or is the speedometer "real"?

Yup, regional differences...for sure....

It seems in USA, base models of HEV and PHEV both have the Type A dash (as described in the manual), which includes a physical speedometer, rather than a digital one that converts to a tachometer in Sport mode (Type B).

In Canada, all trim levels of the PHEV have the Type B dash, while only the very top trim (Limited with Tech) level of the HEV has Type B. All lower trim levels of the HEV (including my regular Limited) just have the Type A dash. Thus I too am missing any form of tachometer. (I did notice, however, on a 2019 Blue-trim that I rented in January, had a small tachometer available as on the right side of the dash as one of the display options when scrolling through the main screens, but it is not present on my 2017 Ltd.)
