Hi All

I've just bought at 2018 Leaf Tekna. I've been using e-pedal since day one.

I'm just wondering if anyone can answer my question:

When using e-pedal, does B mode and D mode have any discernable difference in terms of efficiency or driving experience. In my very limited tests it appears there is no difference whatsoever.

Thanks in advance.

Doesn't B mode also make the accelerator less responsive? I guess you can still floor it but it's supposed to encourage you to accelerate gently.

That is correct. My observation over three years in a LEAF 2.0 is that E-pedal overrides the B/D mode switch. The display still shows B or D, and if you switch the e-pedal off, you return to the selected B or D mode.

No, B mode makes no discernible (by me) difference to acceleration. It only changes the amount of regeneration.
You're thinking of E-pedal and Eco mode, which both affect acceleration by remapping the pedal response. In particular, Eco mode won't provide full power at all unless you push the pedal past the false limit.

Yes, my finding too.
