You have Regenerative breaking in 3 places now - the breaks, the low gear and the steering wheel pedal. The breaks are as they should be, but having soft regen breaking (low) and hard regen breaking (pedal) is confusing and weird. You can easily combine the soft and hard regen breaking into one. Here are some options:
  1. low and very low gears.
  2. two pedals - one for hard, one for soft regen breaking.
  3. have two stages in the pedal - soft stage and hard stage.
  4. have a continuous range of hardness in the breaking pedal - the more you press the harder it breaks (like the regular breaks).
I would prefer the fourth, or third. I like breaking with my hand.

So you broke your brakes or your brakes are breaking? :)

Ideally, we would like the regen paddle to be progressive like the brake pedal.
Not having experienced the regen paddles, I'm simply not sure. But progressive like the brake pedal sounds useful.

If that were true I will never buy that Volt because it will be breaking every time I need to stop!!

Oh boy! I see where this is going when Elemental gets it.

The brake pedal already is progressive. I would like to see a user setting for regen aggressiveness making one-pedal driving possible.

ACC can already stop the car. Letting up the accelerator pedal could also stop the car.

An analog regen paddle would be interesting where you can control how much regen is applied when pulling the paddle (not a euphemism).

+10, That has been my hope / request for a long time.
Let us decide how aggressive we want the regen to be (Bakes, L and paddle)
I'm confused. What are you asking for that the brake pedal doesn't already do?

Adjusting the max level/intensity of regen

I want settings in the car that let me set the maximum amount of regen used by L, the brake pedal and the paddle (different settings for each)
And eventually I want a setting for how aggressive is the progressive regen curve for these.

But I would be happy with just the first one, so I can make any of these (L, brake, paddle) provide a stronger more aggressive regen.
