Nope, because it has zero effect on how the car drives, all it is is a built in driver coach trying to coax more efficient driving techniques, but it does not interface with the power train at all other than for reading inputs such as how smooth you're accelerating, top speed, acceleration, etc....

That doesn't turn anything off, it just "kills" the leaves and then the car shouts at you to drive smoother, etc... Lol.

That's a shame, would have been cool if Eco mode was able to be switched off

Actually it does have an EcoMode, but you can't turn it off, and it doesn't influence how the car drives.





What I said was it has no control over how you drive, and you can't turn it off, but you can ignore it if you want.

You can make the leaves go away by driving as hard as possible all the time.
