A1
Abstract:
This hybrid vehicle, which includes a first dynamo-electric machine, a battery, an engine, and a second dynamo-electric machine, also includes a drive control unit configured so as to start the engine to cause the second dynamo-electric machine to generate electricity and maintain the charging rate of the battery at a prescribed target charging rate when the charging rate of the battery has decreased below a prescribed electricity generation starting charging rate at which electricity generation by the second dynamo-electric machine is started, and a charging rate setting unit that sets the electricity generation starting charging rate and the target charging rate. The charging rate setting unit raises the electricity generation starting charging rate and the target charging rate when at least one of the following conditions is met: the temperature of the battery is equal to or less than a first prescribed temperature; and the surrounding temperature of the vehicle is equal to or less than a second prescribed temperature.
