Reference the eHDI engine, does anyone have any details regarding how the hybrid works. I have just received my car and am working my way through all the info I can find, but nowhere can I find anything regarding how the revoered electrical energy is then use to aid performance or economy of the car.
Any assistance would be appreciated.

Its just the fancy name for the 2nd generation start stop system ..

It uses the alternator to restart the engine

Yes, the 'e' bit is that the engine drops to idle as you slow down - I was always under the impression idling used more fuel than being in-gear with no throttle.
