I see the advantage when one drives in heavy and slow evening traffic which tires the right foot. Using a paddle will allow the driver to rest the right foot for minutes until a heavy braking maneuver is required and the right foot is needed again.I've looked at threads but can't find an answer.
This is the method I use unless someone else is in the car. The paddle is nice because your foot doesn't get tired going back and forth to the brake in stop and go traffic. But the paddle is a little severe, so with passengers I don't use it as much.I see the advantage when one drive in heavy and slow evening traffic which tires the right foot.

Can anyone explain how the regeneration is actually engaged? What exactly is done to the circuitry to create regen?Adjusting the generator circuits via L, D, paddle, and pedal adjusts the rate at which the kinetic energy is consumed (i.e., the rate the car slows down).
And does the important thing (attempt to stop the car) in ALL possible circumstances. Slippery or bumpy roads? The pedal shifts to friction brakes basically instantly and continues to try to slow the car. Paddle/Low? Braking just quits for what seems like forever (though it's probably only a second or two) and you plow on ahead with no slowing at all. The idea of training my reactions to use a thing that can just give up when I need it most is bowel-loosening scary to me, and I will not let that happen.I will bottom line it for you.
You can achieve the exact same results with either; however, the foot pedal is MUCH easier to modulate.
