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 mph. Or what am I missing?

Is it just yet more marketing BS?

Don’t know about your PHEV but I had a 45 min test drive in new Leaf on Sunday over mixed roads and did not touch the brake once. It’s very intuitive.

That makes more sense. The also use the "real" brakes when required. I wish they would do less marketing and more real information and not have to leave it to these forums and YouTube-ers to explain.

If you are familiar with the previous leaf its feels remarkably similar to how B would feel if the leaf didnt have a creep function. The car comes a more natural feeling stop than the old car.

The weirdest thing I found was manuouvering at low speed and having to use the accelerator rather than just the brake.
