He is wrong. A BMW i3 fakes stronger regenerative braking by reversing drive to the motor at low speeds to bring the car to a halt. Regeneration can not produce significant braking at low speeds.What only one pedal? How do you make a quick emergency stop as opposed to a rolling stop?
And the other nice thing is the cartoon on the instrument panel showing when brake lights are being applied.Tesla’s brake lights come on when a set amount of deceleration happens. I love it. I drove a whole outing once without ever touching the brake. Pads and rotors last forever.
Tesla has an option to disable it because many who only knew automatic transmissions do not understand.I got to drive an electric van for a while at my employer. I did not like the feel of letting off the accelerator pedal and instantly feel a braking effect. That is, it would not coast. I actually disliked it intensely.
Read what they say: ": a pedal in a vehicle that increases the output of the internal combustion engine"
Yes in our car but a Tesla dual motor is like slamming the brakes on hard when you take the foot off the gas pedal with one pedal driving. Being use to our leaf driving the Tesla startled me when taking the foot off the gas pedal.Kind of like dropping into a lower gear with a manual or auto?
