If one floors the accelerator when running under battery there is no doubt the petrol engine doesn’t kick in as well. Just how does one get both drives to kick in together? I have also tried it in the other combination of ‘battery hold ‘ etc

You are looking for sport mode. Pull the gear shifter back, the drive selector indicator will change from D to S.
Enjoy :)

Yes I can try sport mode but I think that only delays gear change ups.

On my 2015 e-tron when you floor it whilst running in EV the power meter moves to 100% and if you push the gas pedal further it engages the ICE and moves into Boost on the power meter, you then get the full 210bhp.

Similarly, when running on ICE if you floor it and push further the electric motor engages and the power meter moves to Boost giving you 210bhp.

There's the launch control that you can try out.
I don't recall the sequence but I've tried it twice so far and it's fun!
Something like: DSC Off, transmission is Sport mode, left foot on the brakes while depressing the Go pedal.
Do a search online and I'm sure you'll find it.

Ah I am learning. What you have to do in either mode is floor the accelerator - EASE IT BACK -then floor it again to get 210 bop!

Press the pedal down to the first stop then push it past to enter "boost" mode.

How much more power does the boost mode actually provide btw?

they spread out the powerband by using the torque of the electric to get you off the line and then the engine kicks in and the turbo from high rpm's give torque when the electric motor dies off.

it is all on purpose to give power both at the low end and at the high. That gas engine will not get that car off the line quicker than the electric motor, the electric motor without a proper battery cannot sustain high draw for long. that is the trade off for hybrid for now.
