  1. Recuperation modes and usage

    Hyundai Kona
    I'm surprised there are not more posts on this subject. I'm not thrilled with the recup options provided on the Kona: 1. I'm good with the four fixed levels for long descents and city driving. More levels would not be amiss though. 2. Left-paddle recup and hold: a) when you are turning you...
  2. 11.6 kwh used

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    There must be some bug when the computer calculates the used KWh maybe it also counts the kw regened?
  3. EV battery (and drive train) for off grid camper

    Off Topic and Banter
    there are a few people who have torn apart EV batteries for use in off-grid campers/RV's, I was wondering whether you could transplant the whole of a gen1 leaf or i-miev drivetrain into something like a sprinter van including the battery, charger and motor attached to the engine working in...
  4. Leaf & Env200 Range extender

    General Nissan EV Discussion
    So I had a forum affiliated advert pop up on bottom of screen while browsing this forum just now on my PC. Range extender, improved regen in D, power, glide (roll) mode and naturally just had to click on it. What is it all about? I take it this must be a scam and nonsense, as otherwise I would...
  5. "New" Leaf ePedal ... is it just like B3 on my PHEV?

    General EV Discussion
    I have order a new Leaf n-connecta, so this isn't a snide go but from watching all the descriptions and demos of the "innovative", "unique", "world first" ePedal thing ... looks just like setting a higher regen mode (B3 or B4) on my PHEV apart from a little creep when you drop to a couple of...
  6. Strong regen!

    First Generation Ioniq
    I saw -87kW regen braking in the Ioniq yesterday. Interesting that this matches the maximum power output. I guess it makes sense, because we know that the charger is 100kW capable. What is also interesting is that this was available with 90% battery charge and in cold weather. This is nearly...
  7. Regen across different EVs?

    General EV Discussion
    As a follow-up to my earlier request for recommendations for my next EV I wanted to ask about how regen is done on different EV ranges. On my PHEV there are the paddles as well as the gear stick and I can pick from none (B0) through to heavy (B5) but I noticed that on some models people only...
  8. Full Regenerative brakes at 95%?

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Can't find this in forum anywhere so apologies if this is a double post. I was my understanding that my leaf didn't start doing full Regenerative breaking until the battery reached 85%. (Full double circles) This morning on the the way to work I noticed I had full Regenerative breaking at 95%...
  9. Regen' Braking Stronger in Eco mode?

    Renault ZOE
    Is the regenerative braking stronger in Eco mode? Or is it because the car has more performance in normal mode and regen' braking has more to work with that it feels it isn't slowing the car as strongly?
