Full stop in low

I really wish that they would reprogram or offer a software update to have the Volt come to a full stop using regen rather than creep in low. The creep although doing exactly what it is designed to do —- mimic a gas automatic transmission— is irritating in this car and my leg gets tired of the brake pedal, which given the strong regen and the regen paddle I really only use now otherwise for sudden stops. Since they apparently implemented this in the Bolt in low, I assume there is no hardware related reason they couldn’t have that code deployed in the Volt? Really wish they did...

While a full stop may be practical in a BEV because there is just one motor, the Volt has a separate traction and generator motor. The generator is only 55kW. Volt has to constantly switch between these motors as the vehicle decelerates/accelerates. So, the regen system is significantly different from Bolt, and not a simple software update.
