It is a simple question.... That's basically the question I've been asking. If you stomp on the pedal in "D" mode, what's the maximum shown on the display? ...
It seems like such a simple question - what am I missing?
This is exactly why I want to find out how much regen you get in "D" mode. With the discussion of the differences between the braking system on the Bolt EV vs. the Volt, I'm suspecting that using the brake pedal on the Bolt will start to engage the friction brakes before reaching full regen, and it might not even reach full regen with the brake pedal alone. In that case, you'd be better off driving in "L" mode since you'd be guaranteed of never using the friction brakes unless you had to decelerate so strongly that you need to use the brake pedal.I really question Chevy making efficiency claims of 5-15% better in L.
If the Accel rates, the cruise speeds and the Decel rates are the same,, why would there be any differences?
Me too. It's such a simple question. Regen in D with no friction brakes.This is exactly why I want to find out how much regen you get in "D" mode.
Traffic Most of the time if you are stomping on the brake pedal you are paying attention to what is outside your windshield, not what is on the dash display. I would say that the only people doing testing right now drive most of the time in low, and have not gotten around to testing high speed brake pedal use in D yet
And Thank You so much!!!
Thanks for the info. Please help me understand the test conditions.
SOC was around 50-60%.Thanks for the info. Please help me understand the test conditions.
What SoC was the battery at during this testing?
Please confirm these max's were created by pressing the brake pedal, not simply lifting the accelerator.
Were you going downhill or decelerating from a particular speed when you hit these maxes?
I think you were over the SOC cutoff, because I was able to achieve 65 kW in D using the brake pedal.
