Parax is correct. At very low speeds there isn't enough regen power generated to operate as an effect brake and so it switches to mechanical brakes for the last second or two when stopping.

Ideally if should be seamless but all the EVs I have driven it is slightly perceivable. It seems a little more noticable on the Ampera than on the Leaf.

It can catch you out the first couple of times so leave extra room between you and whatever is in front when stopping until you get used to it ;)
