A hybrid vehicle has an internal combustion engine drive that includes at least one internal combustion engine and an electromotive drive that includes at least one electric motor and a battery. The battery can be charged both via the internal combustion engine and via an external power supply. At least one electronic control unit is designed such that, in the event of at least one defined condition that indicates an insufficient use of the electromotive drive compared to the internal combustion engine drive, at least one coercive measure is taken to influence the behavior of the driver towards increasing the use of the electrical drive. The coercive measure may be keeping an automatically lockable fuel tank cover locked.
