Every hybrid and electric car I have owned or driven (quite a few) has only applied the friction brakes on hard braking or for the last few yards when stopping, using regenerative braking first. I was planning on buying a new or used MS early next year though I had pretty much decided to get a new M3 instead... until I recently learned that Teslas do not engage regenerative braking on pressing the brake pedal. Firstly, is this correct? Secondly how do people find it? I like to drive fast and therefore inefficiently occasionally, but most of the time I like to squeeze as many miles out of every kWh of battery as I can. I am not attracted to the high regen one pedal driving thing as "feathering the throttle" (anachronistic term now I suppose) to coast is difficult to get spot on and you will usually be powering or regenerating by a couple of kWh when you actually want to coast and this is inefficient. I do this in my Volt but what I really like about my Mercedes B250e (Tesla running gear) is that you can turn regen up or down, including to zero, with the paddles on the wheel. I use this a lot and barely use the brake pedal but when I do, it still uses regen. I am keen to hear other people's opinions and experience of this as currently I am rather put off a Tesla because of it. Perhaps I am being a bit precious or too much of a purist and the Tesla system works well? Can you easily adjust regen on the fly? Can you designate one of the manual controls to change it rather than going through the menus on the touch screen?
